Accreditation
Live educational eventsE-learning materials

A live educational event is a meeting/event that requires the presence of a participant on the event’s site or a tele-presence when an event takes place. 

By extension, live webinars are considered LEEs. A webinar is a live online educational presentation during which participation by viewers can be confirmed and they can submit questions and answers. 

The recording of a live educational event made available online after the event has taken place is not considered a LEE. 

For further information on our criteria and accreditation process, please consult our reference document UEMS 2016/20 – “EACCME Criteria for the accreditation of live educational events”.
