PHYSICIANS: The Harvard Medical School is accredited
by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to
provide continuing medical education for physicians.
The Harvard Medical School designates this live activity for a maximum of 14.00 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada
recognizes conferences and workshops held outside of Canada that are developed by a university, academy, hospital, specialty society or college as accredited group learning activities.
AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ claimed by physicians attending live events certified and organized in the United States for AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™
can be claimed through the agreement on mutual recognition of credits
between UEMS and AMA, considered as being equal to the European
Continuous Medical Education Credits (ECMEC©) granted by the UEMS. One AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
is equivalent to one (1) hour of European EACCME Credit (ECMEC©),
therefore up to 14.00 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist
should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in
the educational activity.
Information on the process of converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ to ECMECs® can be found at: www.eaccme.eu.
