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 2021 Congress will be posted on this website as soon as they are available.
