Since 2006 members of the EU-ACME programme have been able to earn continuing medical education (CME) credits by answering multiple choice questions (MCQs) that are included in all accredited articles of the EAU journals, namely: European Urology, EU Supplements and EAU-EBU Update Series. This has proven to be a very convenient and easily accessed format – growing in popularity year on year.
To increase awareness about on-line CME and promote this modern educational approach which have seen further success in 2010, the EU-ACME committee decided to continue with this exciting initiative.
From all EU-ACME members who participated, the three highest scoring participants who topped the MCQ quizzes published in these journals will be entitled to a free registration for the 27th Annual EAU Congress to be held in Paris from 24-28 February 2012.
Only multiple questions from the European Urology, EU Supplements and the EAU-EBU Update Series published from 1 June 2011 until 31 December 2011 will be considered.
Members of the EAU Board meeting welcomed the idea during their latest meeting in Barcelona, and were in agreement that a competitive approach may encourage the best and the most talented to participate.
The winning members will be formally notified in early January next year, and their names will be published in the February 2012 issue of the European Urology Today newsletter.
