Certificate of Attendance

We are working with Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis to obtain accreditation for the teaching course and the main congress. For our European attendees, we would like to inform you that a recognition agreement between RCPSC and EACCME® is in place. According to this, the participants who will obtain accreditation certificates in the USA will be able to submit these to their respective national accreditation authority for conversion into national credits.

Each medical specialist should claim only those credits that they actually spent in the educational activity.

 Please note, delegates are entitled to request a CME certificate under the following conditions:

  • Delegates attend sessions (in-person or online) during the Congress week (2nd – 7th October 2023). Delegates cannot claim CME credits for on-demand viewing of recorded sessions outside the Congress week. 
  • Attendance for both in-person and virtual attendees will be recorded and verified. 
  • Delegates complete the overall post congress online evaluation form using the unique bespoke link sent in an email to registered delegates after the congress. If you can't locate your unique evaluation link, please check spam/junk folders, or contact us by emailing registration@worldmusclesociety.org.  The process of completing the evaluation form takes about 5 minutes and delegates are given two weeks to complete this. We thank you for your feedback as it is an important part of accreditation and helps us to improve future congresses. 
  • If the above conditions have been met, delegates should expect to receive a CME credit claim form 3 weeks post-congress followed by an automatically issued certificate of attendance.
  • Any request for a certificate of attendance after 22nd October 2023 will not have CME points included.
