CME Courses

The EPA CME Congress Course programme was launched in 2002 during the 11th European Congress of Psychiatry in Stockholm and is tailored for mental health professionals interested in accessing continuing medical training and international education programmes about new scientific data and new medical techniques that are essential for their daily practice.

The EPA Congress CME courses are accredited courses of 180-minute sessions that have been designed to emphasise learning experiences that actively involve participants and include an opportunity for informal exchange with the faculty.

The content of the course programme is designed by the EPA Committee on Education, which assures a continuous evaluation of the educational quality of provided courses using peer reviews and participant surveys. All Congresss Courses are accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (UEMS-EACCME).
