The European Society of Ophthalmology Congress 2023, Prague, Czech Republic, 15/06/2023-17/06/2023 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 found at www.amaassn.org/education/earn creditparticipationinternational activities.

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.
