The Accreditation Council in Imaging (ACI)
The ACI is the accreditation body of the EBR and provides a one-step service for CME accreditation, supporting the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME) in delivering and harmonising the highest level of CME in imaging.
European CMEs (ECMEC ®) are recognised in USA through the agreement of mutual recognition signed in 2002 between the UEMS-EACCME and the AMA (American Medical Association). Furthermore, in 2016 an agreement of mutual recognition of CME credits was signed between the UEMS-EACCME and the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
The ACI aims to provide the highest level of CME available today. The ACI’s purpose is to make managing CME quick and easy for all applicants and to be the beacon of European and global CME.
- To ensure that CME meets the needs and expectations of medical professionals today
- To ensure provision of high-quality CME/CPD activities to radiologists and modern, excellent accreditation services to education providers in the field of radiology
- To be the unified voice of radiology professionals and education providers
The European Board of Radiology (EBR) is an independent organisation dedicated to the investigation, development and implementation of certification and accreditation activities and programmes in the field of radiology and imaging diagnosis in Europe. The Accreditation Council in Imaging (ACI) is the accreditation body of the EBR and is responsible for the accreditation of live educational events and e-learning materials in collaboration with the UEMS-EACCME. Additionally, the ACI aims to investigate the last trends and developments in radiology education. For that reason, one of the tasks of the ACI Policy Committee is the research of the evolution, trends and needs of the radiological community in Continuing Medical Education in Europe and beyond, which is carried out through yearly surveys among the members of the European Society of Radiology (ESR). We are pleased to offer you the reports on the results of the surveys conducted so far:
