CME Accreditation


EASL has applied to the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide CME accreditation for medical specialists attending the EASL Monothematic Conference: Systems Biology of the Liver: Systems biology and clinics face à face. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS) www.uems.net.

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. 

EACCME credits are recognized by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert EACCME credit to AMA PRA category 1 credit, contact the AMA.

Vice versa, all CME activities approved by the American Medical Association (AMA) are recognized by the EACCME. The American Medical Association is an ‘Accredited Provider’ of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) – USA.

Updated information regarding CME accreditation will be available on the conference website.
