Continuous Professional Development (CE) points

The course was awarded 8 CE credits by the European Board for Accreditation of Continuing Education for Health Professionals (EBAC) and 3 CPD points by the British Society of Echocardiography. Through an agreement between the EBAC and the American Medical Association physicians may convert EBAC® CE credits to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EBAC credit to AMA credit can be found on the AMA website. Other health care professionals may obtain from the AMA a certificate of having participated in an activity eligible for conversion of credit to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™.

The certificate of attendance will be distributed to the registered e-mail. To receive your CME certificate, you need to watch the course live and fill in EBAC and EACVI evaluation forms and MCQs for self-assessment, provided at the end of the course. The number of CME points awarded will be based on the real tracked time spent viewing the course live (1 hour=1 EBAC point, 2 hours=1 BSE point). Unfortunately, we cannot provide the attendance certificate for watching lectures on demand.
