UEMS/EACCME CME credit recognition
The American Medical Association (AMA) has an agreement of mutual recognition of continuing medical education (CME) credit with the European Union of Medical Specialties (UEMS).
Under the terms of this agreement, the AMA will convert CME credit for live and e-learning activities certified by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME), the accrediting arm of the UEMS, to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The renewed agreement is in place through July 31, 2022.
Physicians (MDs, DOs or equivalent international degree) may have their EACCME European CME Credits (ECMEC®s) converted to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ by applying to the AMA.
Following the agreement on the mutual recognition of credits between the American Medical Association and the UEMS-European Accreditation Council for CME, here are ways one can receive credits for qualifying activities:
A procedure for the conversion from ECMEC®s into AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ is in place and a procedure for the conversion of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ into ECMEC®s will be installed when appropriate.
A complete list of live and e-learning activities can be found at the EACCME website for which credit may be converted to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ . (This link will take you off the AMA website. The AMA is not responsible for the content of other websites.) International physicians interested in converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to EACCME credit should contact the UEMS.
Follow the instructions to apply for conversion of EACCME credit to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. The certificate(s) will be available within the transcript section of your AMA Ed Hub profile. Questions? Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
