The 28th European Childhood Obesity Group Meeting which will be held in Porto, Portugal, 14/11/2018-16/11/2018, has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) for a maximum of 19 European CME credits (ECMEC®s).
Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
The EACCME® is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net.
Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credits to AMA credits can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.
Live educational activities occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC® credits are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
