The European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education

EACCME was established by the Management Council of the UEMS in its October 1999 meeting in Vienna and started operation in January 2000. In the field of Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) the EACCME will serve this purpose by insuring accessibility to quality CME activities and securing European exchange of CME credits for the medical specialists in Europe.

The UEMS-EACCME has set up a Specialist Accreditation Committee in Cardiology (SACC) in collaboration with the UEMS Section of Cardiology and the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) for the evaluation and accreditation of live educational events and e-learning materials. This Committee is made up of reviewers coming from both the UEMS Section and the ESC.

The procedure of accreditation is as follows:

Applications in the field of Cardiology will be submitted to EACCME® through the  EACCME® portal.  The EACCME® criteria for live and e-learning events will apply for the submission, Review and accreditation process and the EACCME® Office will be responsible for managing the process of submission, review and accreditation.
