Physician CMEs

The 27th International Conference on Prenatal Diagnosis and Therapy, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, 18/06/2023-21/06/2023 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 20 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

Genetic Counselor CEUs

Genetic counselor attendees will need to request Category 2 CEUs from the National Society of Genetic Counselors (NSGC) within 90 days of attending the event.

This conference is COMPLIANT with Ethical MedTech standards (event EMT32171).


Tracking attendance for Continuing Education Certificates

This year, ISPD is required to have physician attendees track their attendance in courses and educational sessions. Genetic counselors are responsible for reporting their attended courses/sessions directly to NSGC in the 90 days following the conference. Genetic counselors may also use this document to see how many CMEs are allocated per conference session.

For virtual attendees, the virtual conference platform automatically tracked attendance of individual courses/sessions

In-person attendees who have purchased CME certificates were asked to track their attendance in each course/session by using the conference mobile app to scan the QR code on a sign outside the meeting room. This helped ISPD meet the requirement. An attendance sheet was available at the ISPD registration desk as a backup, but scanning was the preferred method for recording attendance.

All attendees who purchased CME certificates are also asked to self-report their attended sessions in an Attendance Verification Form distributed after the conference. CMEs are allocated per session as shown here.

If you have not purchased a CME certificate, you may contact ISPD Headquarters to do so.

Please Note: The following are NOT accredited for continuing education: social events, meals and breaks, poster sessions, Committee/Board meetings, SIG breakfasts, industry-sponsored meals and symposia, and Lightning Communications Session 1 (which includes industry speakers).
