Continuing Medical Education (CME)


The scientific program of the 21st International AIDS Conference has been reviewed by the American Medical Association (AMA) and approved for a maximum of 23 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. One credit may be claimed for each hour of participation in approved sessions.

The American Medical Association has an agreement of mutual recognition of Continuing Medical Education (CME) credits with the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS), the accreditation body for European countries. Physicians interested in converting AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ to UEMS-European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education CME credits (ECMECs) should contact the UEMS at [email protected].

If you need to claim credits, please send an email to [email protected] with your name and, if possible, your registration ID. Once your attendance at AIDS 2016 has been confirmed, you will receive a form to complete, which you will then to the AMA for approval.
