Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits

ERS has submitted an application for CME accreditation to the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP).

Recognition of CME credits

For accredited activities, credits can be exchanged for their national equivalent by contacting your national CME authority. A record of your CME credit status will also be kept for future reference.

Receiving your CME credits

CME credits (number to be confirmed soon) can be accrued between live sessions and session replays. CME credits are awarded based on your attendance of live sessions taking place between 7–10 September, 2024. CME credits will be also awarded for sessions replays, based on your hourly consumption.

Please note that the Wednesday 11 September programme is not accredited.

The following activities are accredited separately:

  • The thoracic ultrasound training programme Part 3 – OSCE.
  • Part 2 of the adult and paediatric respiratory medicine academies.
  • Part 2 of the academy of pulmonary rehabilitation.

Only registered participants will receive CME credits.

From 18 September and after completion of the Congress evaluation survey – which is mandatory to receive CME credits – you will be able to download your CME certificate. Certificates of attendance and CME credits can be downloaded on your myERS account.

All Congress delegates will be given access to the platform to claim CME credits from 18 September until 30 December, 2024. Disclaimer: You cannot claim CME credits for attending sessions organised by industry nor thematic poster sessions.

Should you have any questions, please contact us.
