UEMS CME CREDITS
An application will be made to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) for CME accreditation of the 57th ERA-EDTA Congress and pre-congress CMEs. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
Congress members receiving certificates for ECMEC credits must contact their National Accreditation Authority to have the credits recognised (or converted) in their country of practice.
EACCME credits are recognised by the American Medical Association (AMA) towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, you should contact the AMA directly. The total number of CME credits given to the ERA-EDTA Milan Congress will be posted on the website as soon as they are available.

HOW TO RECEIVE UEMS CME CREDITS
ERA-EDTA will track attendance of congress members during the congress at the MiCo – Milano Convention Centre each day.
Regularly registered congress members must selfscan their badge at the kiosks at the entrance of the lecture rooms (at registered congress members’s own responsibility). The UEMS certificate reflecting the actual attendance (based in the scanning done) can ONLY be available after the congress. More information in due course at www.era-edta.org.
The UEMS CME Credit certificate shall NOT be sent by post.
