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 exclusive membership access only to the EADV Website (access is available to all membership categories except supporting membership).
Please consult the EADV membership section of the website www.eadv.org for more details. Membership application form available on-line.
Continuing Medical Education (CME)
The 21st EADV Congress will have European Accreditation awarded by the UEMS/EACCME in Brussels. UEMS accreditation includes a charter with the American Medical Association*.
You are encouraged to pass by the CME-CPD Checkpoint located near the Registration Desk if you have any questions.
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. This requires several seconds to ensure your presence is correctly recorded.
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 when scanning their registration badge as they leave 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.eadvprague2012.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 cut off.
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.
*EACCME credits (ECMECs) are recognised by the American Medical Association towards the Physician’s Recognition Award (PRA). To convert ECMECs to AMA PRA category 1 credits, please contact the AMA.
Please refer to the national CME-CPD authority in your country of practice for the exchange of CME-CPD credits/points.
