The bioHC Schools are subject to an application for European Accreditation under their Continuing Medical Education programme (CME). European Accreditation will mean that the BioHC programme fulfill the quality requirements of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS-EACCME®). A CME programme can be accredited by UEMS-EACCME® if it has a high quality scientific content, if it has an appropriate educational approach, and if it is free of commercial bias. On the basis of UEMS-EACCME® accreditation, the approval from the NAA of the country where the programme takes place will be recognised in all the other European countries.
CME accreditation granted by the UEMS-EACCME® also provides a guarantee to participants from all over the world that the content of the CME provided is of a high quality, unbiased and didactic and, for European doctors, that this quality will be recognised in their home country.
Since the UEMS-EACCME® is an institution of the UEMS which formally represents European countries, its credits are recognised by National Accreditation Authorities in Europe. As UEMS-EACCME® accreditation concerns only EU-wide and international CME-CPD activities, it is not competitive but rather complementary to the competence and activities of National Accreditation Authorities.
