The comprehensive program can be found here, updated as of 23 April. This document is the most accurate information regarding the program. 

The 12th Congress of The World Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology, Melbourne, Australia, 20/04/2018-24/04/2018 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 34 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 CreditsTM. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.

The Congress Organising Committee is pleased to announce that the below meetings will be held in conjunction with the 12th Congress of the World Federation of Nuclear Medicine and Biology 2018.
