CME Accreditation


The 4th World Congress on Controversies, Debates & Consensus in Bone, Muscle & Joint Diseases (BMJD) has been accredited
by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME)
to provide CME activity for medical specialists.

The 4th BMJD Congress is designated for a maximum of, or up to

 12 European CME credits (ECMEC)

To Receive Your CME/CPD Certi­ficate

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.

The CME/CPD certi­ficate will be available after completing the online evaluation and credit claiming procedure. The process takes about 5 weeks. We thank you for your feedback as it is an important part of CME/CPD accreditation and helps improve future educational offerings.

To receive your CME credits, please complete the questionnaire at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BMJD2016

After completing the questionnaire, you will receive your certificate as soon as possible
