Please read the below statement from the EACCME regarding CME/CPD certification for the ISUOG World Congress 2022:
CME/CPD accreditation at the ISUOG World Congress
“The 32nd World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology, London, United Kingdom,
16/09/2022-18/09/2022 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing
Medical Education (EACCME®) with 18 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist
should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.”
“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
“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.”
Frequently Asked Questions regarding CME/CPD
1. Will delegates receive a certificate of attendance? How do I obtain and complete my certificate of attendance?
All delegates (in-person and virtual) will receive an online evaluation form by email (at the same email address you used to register for the Congress), after the live Congress has taken place. On completion of this online evaluation, you will be able to download your certificate of attendance. You will need to type in your name into the name field to personalise your certificate. You can use this certificate to self-certify and claim your CME points.
NB: We encourage all delegates to download and save the certificate to their computer, as they will not be able to revisit the page after navigating away from it.
2. How will I know my CME points?
Each medical specialist should claim only the hours of credit that they actually spent in the educational activity and after completion of the evaluation form. ISUOG will not provide a detailed individual record of sessions attended for delegates. All delegates are recommended to keep a note of their individual session attendance throughout the event to aid with their self-certification process.
3. Do I have to watch the sessions live in order to claim CME points?
Registered delegates will be able to watch the content on demand via the virtual platform for up to 1 month after the World Congress and will still be able to claim CME points. The conditions on how to obtain a certificate of attendance (see question 1) will still apply to delegates who watch the Congress content on demand. After 1 month, the Congress content will be archived in the members’ area of the ISUOG website and will only be accessible for members who were registered for the live event for 1 year. The content will then become available to all members.
