Credit conversion 

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at  

Credit will be converted based on one hour of participation equalling one credit for all activities. Physicians and other healthcare professionals will be required to pay a processing fee to the AMA. 

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s 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.  

For other countries, please contact the relevant national or regional accreditation authority.
