Earn CME Credit While Attending a Conference Outside the United States

AMA Wire (09/10/2018) Berg, Sara

Health professionals should be aware that they can earn continuing medical education credit when attending an international conference. Under the International Conference Recognition (ICR) Program, the American Medical Association (AMA) House of Delegates created a policy allowing for certain events to be approved for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. To receive such credit, a conference must meet established criteria, and the sponsoring organization must agree to certain terms before the conference takes place. Among the organizations recognized by the ICR program is the European Union of Medical Specialties (UEMS). Under an agreement with the UEMS, AMA will convert CME credit for live and e-learning activities that are certified by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education — the accrediting arm of the UEMS — to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit.
