Shift to mandatory CME in Europe

  • Policy UEMS : CME is an ethical obligation and should not be mandatory
  • Voluntary CME is effective on macro-level
  • But, on individual level participation has to be encouraged

Mandatory CME is not effective in the weeding out of bad apples

Effects Mandatory CME

  • Recognition CME credits by a National Regulating body, preferably a professional body
  • Quality of CME activities is being assessed by a scientific body

End of freedom of CME providers to determine the content of their programs themselves
