Accredited providers can now offer a new benefit to German physicians who participate in their activities. The German State Chambers of Physicians will now automatically recognize certificates of attendance for live, in-person CME activities organized by accredited providers in the ACCME System. These activities must take place in the United States or its territories. If a provider wants to offer accredited CME in Germany, the provider needs to apply for recognition from the appropriate Chamber in order for German physicians to receive credit.
The German Medical Association recognized the equivalency of providers in the ACCME System following an assessment of the ACCME by the German Medical Association last year. This decision is limited to five years, expiring in November 2021.
We appreciate the German Medical Association and the German State Chambers of Physicians for this opportunity, which will enable our accredited providers to offer more options for German physicians to participate in high-quality CME.
