The Academy

Founded in 1987, EADV is a non-profit association whose mission is to advance excellence in clinical care, research, education and training in the field of dermatology and venereology and to act as the advocate and educator of patients particularly those with cutaneous or venereal diseases.

How to Become a Member

Membership is open to all dermatologists and venereologists as well as scientists working in these fields and trainees in dermatology. In addition, other health care professionals with an interest in dermatovenereology may also be eligible for membership.

EADV membership includes the subscription to the Journal of the European Academy of Dermatology & Venereology (JEADV), substantial discounts to attend all EADV Annual Congresses and Spring Symposia.

Each member will receive also the EADV newsletter and access to "Members only" pages of the EADV Website (access is available to all membership categories except supporting membership).

Please consult our website (www.eadv.org) for further information about EADV membership.

Continuing Medical Education – Continuing Professionnal Development (CME-CPD)    
   
The 'European Academy of Dermatology and Venereology (EADV)' (or) '23rd EADV Congress' is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) to provide the following CME activity for medical specialists. The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), www.uems.net

The '23rd EADV Congress' is designated for a maximum of (or 'for up to') 21 hours of European external CME credits. Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the European Union of Medical Specialists and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/go/internationalcme . Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognized by the UEMS-EACCME for ECMEC credits 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.

EACCME credits

Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity. The EACCME credit system is based on 1 ECMEC per hour with a maximum of 3 ECMECs for half a day and 6 ECMECs for a full-day event.

Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange into CME-CPD credits/points.

Procedure

The EADV offers individual CME-CPD participation through the scanning of the bar code on the registration badge. Hostesses will scan the badge as participants pass through the entrance of each session hall. Several seconds will be required to ensure the badges are scanned correctly.

A minimum attendance for half of the session is required to qualify for CME-CPD accreditation of that session and each participant will be accredited only with the actual hours spent in sessions as recorded by the scanning process.

Participants will be logged out of the session as they scan their badge when leaving the session hall. 

A speaker/session evaluation form will be available as you enter each session hall and should be completed and deposited with the hostesses when you leave. The form is only available at the time of the session.

Evaluation data is essential to our statistics and is of considerable help in the choice of future topics and speakers. Your feedback and comments are greatly appreciated.

Certification and Personal Speaker Evaluation Data

CME certificates will be available to download for a period of one year from www.eadvamsterdam2014.org for processing with the national authority in your country of practice.

It will be possible to change and modify your address if desired. The remainder of the certificate is write-protected.

For the download you will need to enter your registration number (which appears on your badge) as well as your family name. Certificates will not be mailed and copies will not be available after the one-year cutoff.

Personal evaluation data, collected from the completed evaluation forms, will be automatically sent to the speakers. All data is treated confidentially and is generally available several months after the event. It is also envisaged to publish the top ten sessions in the EADV News.

Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange of CME-CPD credits/points.
