Programme 2015

     
The Excellence in Pediatrics 2015 Conference is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EA CCME) to provide CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UE MS), www.uems.net. The exact designated hours of European external CME credits will be mentioned on your attendance certificate. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EA CCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EA CCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme.
