Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits

ERS applied for CME accreditation from the European Board for Accreditation in Pneumology (EBAP).

EBAP has granted 24 CME European CME credits for the ERS Virtual Congress programme 2020.

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 can be claimed for attendance to live sessions only.

In accordance with the accreditation requirements and the virtual format of the event, a new CME tracking system has been put in place. The time each participant spends watching a live session will be monitored.

Please note that an evaluation of the attended live sessions will be mandatory. You will first need to complete an evaluation form before you can access your CME credits certificate. Participants will receive an email with instructions on how to do this in due course.

Printing or downloading your CME and online attendance certificates can be done after the Congress. In order to print your certificates, go to myERS and login with your myERS credentials.

Please be aware that if a session is not listed on your certificate, you will be able to claim the CME credits associated to this session until November 2020.

Disclaimer: The Device Mini Symposia, Early Morning Symposia, Lunchtime Sessions and Evening Symposia are organised by industry. You cannot claim CME credits for attending these sessions.
