The German Medical Association recommends that the German chambers of physicians recognise certificates of participation for continuing education activities that have been certified by the Austrian Medical Chamber or the Austrian Academy of Physicians for the acquisition of CME points without further detailed assessment.

The Austrian Medical Chamber’s continuing medical education regulations (www.arztakademie.at/fileadmin/template/main/dfpPdfs/20180101_DFP_VO_konsolidFassung.pdf) stipulate that the continuing education points from categories A, B, C, D, F, G and H that are recognized by the German chambers of physicians should be recognised to the same extent as DFP points (Diplom-Fortbildungs-Programm = continuing education diploma program).
