The State of CME in Europe A Work in Progress
Continuing Medical Education (CME) in Europe has undergone some major shifts in recent years. These have varied across Europe: from national changes in which systems have moved from being voluntary to mandatory, to the establishment of more formal systems to guide physicians on how to keep up-to-date with latest clinical practice.

“While for some, CME has become clear and straightforward, for the majority, European CME still remains a cacophony of disparate rules shrouded in mysterious regulations,” says Eugene Pozniak, Managing Director of Siyemi Learning.
