We are happy to announce that the World Congress of Surgery 2017 (www.wcs2017.org) was granted 30 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).
European Accreditation is granted by the EACCME in order to allow participants who attend the above-mentioned activity to validate their credits in
their own country.
Accreditation by the EACCME confers the right to place the following statement in all communication materials including the registration website, the
event programme and the certificate of attendance. The following statements must be used without revision:
»The 'International Society of Surgery' (or) 'World Congress of Surgery WCS 2017' is accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing

EACCME credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Information on the process to convert EACCME credit to AMA credit can
