European CME Forum is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to bringing together all stakeholder groups with an interest in European Continuing Medical Education (CME)/Continuing Professional Development (CPD) for healthcare professionals. It facilitates multi-channel discussion in an independent and neutral environment to promote the advance of high quality CME in Europe.
The 14th Annual European CME Forum will take place 3-5 November 2021 and we have made the decision to go Virtual again for 2021. The theme this year is The 3-legged stool: Achieving balance for effective CME. More information here. We have also recently launched our new Podcast where we will also maintain a steady flow of information in the run up to 14ECF.
Last November we met for the 13th Annual European CME Forum, take a look at the meeting page for downloads and more information. We are also releasing highlights during 2021 on social media, including in the new Podcast.

This year our PubMed-indexed Open Access journal, Journal of European CME (JECME), launched a Special Collection on Digitization of Continuing Education in the Health Professions which has received an unprecedented response. The journal will be publishing the articles throughout October, with select authors invited by the Guest Editors to discuss their work during 14ECF.

14th Annual European CME Forum
The 14th Annual European CME Forum will be run as a virtual meeting, broadcast in high quality from a central studio using an interactive platform. Leave behind the gloom of Zoom and join us in a productive and collaborative environment to explore European and global CME-CPD.
The 3-legged stool: Achieving balance for effective CME
Effective CME-CPD requires a stable relationship between three key factors, just as a three-legged stool requires all three legs to remain balanced. In this year’s meeting we will examine the spectrum of control and influence in each “leg”:
- Rules and Regulations
- Educational Design and Outcomes
- Funding and Independence
We will gather leaders in the field to discuss and debate each of these topics, with plenty of opportunity for you to engage with your own questions and observations.
Whether or not you are planning to attend, please participate in the Annual CME survey there is a registration discount code to use of you decide to attend.
The 14th Annual European CME Forum (#14ECF) is for anyone with an interest in European and global CME-CPD. We attract the key stakeholders in European and global CME-CPD/IME, regulators, associations and providers across Europe, North America and the world. This meeting is designed to meet the needs of anyone involved in, or interested in, European and global CME.
