In 2004 the European Board of Urology (EBU) and the European Association of Urology (EAU) joined forces to promote Continuing Medical Education (CME) and Continuing Professional Development (CPD) amongst all urologists in Europe by creating a new committee, the EU-ACME, which stands for European Urology – Accredited Continuing Medical Education.
European urologists can participate in various accredited courses, forums and events which help them to keep pace with the latest in the
field of practical medicine. By doing so, experts gain CME credit points, which are uniformly recognized in all EU member states.
The EU-ACME programme gives access to an online system, which helps you to keep track of your educational activities, irrespective of the country you practice in or where you have participated in CME/CPD-accredited activities. More information about how to collect your credits can be found on the website of EU-ACME.
EAU members are automatically enrolled to the EU-ACME Programme. They have the following benefits:
- CME Registry to track and report CME/CPD activities
- Yearly Credit Registry Report with all CME/CPD activities
- “Members only” services on the EU-ACME web site, such as Member Directory, address Changes, Credit Registry Report, registration of CPD activities
- Easy CME credits by reading and answering questions about accredited articles in scientific journals
