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 17.50 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 17.50 ECMEC© Credits are available. Each medical specialist
should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in
the educational activity.
*Note: AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ is calculated based on submission of a preliminary agenda and may be subject to change.
CME activities sponsored by Harvard Medical School are offered solely for educational purposes and do not constitute any form of certification of competency. Practitioners should always consult additional sources of information and exercise their best professional judgment before making clinical decisions of any kind.
