About the European CME Forum

European CME Forum is dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education, promoting multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment.

European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation funded by delegate registrations and sponsorship. As well as establishing and administering the Good CME Practice group, it hosts an annual meeting for CME stakeholders, publishes the PubMed-indexed, open access Journal of European CME (www.jecme.eu) and supports other activities that promote or endorse CME best practice in Europe.
