Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits

ERS applied for CME accreditation from 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 are awarded based on your attendance of live sessions taking place between 5–8 September, 2021. NEW this year – CME credits will be also awarded for pre-congress content and sessions replays, based on your hourly consumption. Up to a maximum of 50 credits can be accrued between pre-congress content, live sessions and session replays (1 CME credit per hour – up to 23 CME credits maximum can be claimed for replay and pre-congress content). Only registered participants will receive CME credits.

From Tuesday 14 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 until December 2021. All congress delegates will be given access to the platform to claim CME credits from 14 September until 30 December, 2021. Disclaimer: You cannot claim CME credits for attending sessions organised by industry.
