European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education. It facilitates multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment to promote the advance of high quality CME in Europe.
We believe that information that ultimately improves patient care should be open for everyone to see, therefore everything we do and present is, where possible, captured, reported and archived, and accessible for free. Over the years we have created what must be the largest CME resource in Europe. We also set up, finance and manage the peer review open access Journal of European CME (JECME), which, as well as being free to access, is currently free for authors to submit to, thanks to additional financial support from European Board for Accreditation in Cardiology (EBAC) and European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS).
I hope that you find the website comprehensive and easy to use.
The Ninth European CME Forum
The 9th Annual European CME Forum (#9ECF) will take place at the Hotel NH Barbizon Palace, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, 9-11 November 2016.
We are very excited as this year #9ECF will be followed on Saturday 12 November by the “UEMS Conference on CME-CPD in Europe”. With the UEMS co-locating their meeting with #9ECF, this means that delegates will be able to benefit from two meetings on a single travel budget!

Regarding #9ECF itself we are working hard on the agenda, we have been reviewing the experiences and feedback from last year, seeing what is happening in the CME environment, and speaking with thought leaders, experts and potential faculty. There seems to be a single message that keeps bearing out in our research and conversations that #9ECF should focus on: if we could say that #8ECF was the one about “Best Practice”, #9ECF will be the one about “Standards and Quality”.
Click on “More Info” for more, and we will soon be opening registrations and the annual survey, in the meantime if you have any thoughts or suggestions please drop me a line.
We look forward to seeing you in Amsterdam!
