CME Credits

The 14th EGS European Glaucoma Residents’ Course, Lisbon, Portugal, 18/09//2020-19/09//2020 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 12 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.
