European Urology – Accredited Continuing Medical Education (EU-ACME Programme) is an initiative resulting from a close collaboration between the European Board of Urology and the European Association of Urology. Its primary task is the implementation, promotion and organisation of continuing medical education (CME). CME activities are generally geared towards practising physicians and are designed to provide information that is both relevant and essential to medical practice. Participating urologists have access to an online system, which helps them keep track of their educational activities, irrespective of the country where they practise or where they have participated in CME accredited activities.
