The International Congress 2021 is an entirely online event and offers 120 hours of educational content.

For the College’s CPD purposes, the normal daily limits will apply - i.e., you can claim a maximum of 6 hours per day. However, please note that delegates will have access to all Congress content for 6 months.

If you are watching content on-demand outside of the Congress dates you can also claim this as CPD. This would still be limited to no more than 6 hours a day and subject to peer group approval.

The attendance certificate provided by the College will only mention the Congress dates. 

Any CPD claimed whether viewed ‘live’ or ‘on-demand’ must be approved by your peer group and we would recommend the use of a reflective note as a part of this process.

As in previous years, the congress has been awarded EACCME accreditation to the value of 25, which can be converted to AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can be found here.
