Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits

ERS applied for CME accreditation from the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP) and the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®).

EBAP accreditation board and UEMS Board have granted European CME credits for the ERS/ESRS International Sleep and Breathing Conference Programme 2017: 18 CME credits are available.

Recognition of CME credits

For accredited activities, credits can be exchanged for their national equivalent by contacting your national CME authority. EACCME credits are recognised throughout Europe and in North America.

A record of your CME credit status will also be kept for future reference.

Receiving your credits

Printing or downloading your CME and attendance certificates can only be done online after the Conference from myERS as of Monday 10 April 2017.

Go to MyERS and login with your myERS credentials in order to get your certificates. Please make sure you keep your badge number as it will be required for your identification. Physicians should only claim those hours of credit spent in this educational activity.

Disclaimer: You cannot claim CME credits for attending the sessions organised by industry or Thematic Poster sessions.
