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 Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC), or certificates of participation from organisers/providers that are accredited by the RCPSC, for the acquisition of CME points without further detailed assessment. This agreement is valid for 5 years and ends on 30 November 2021. It is limited to in-person activities that take place in Canada. It is not valid for continuing education activities that take place in Germany; these must also be recognised by a German state chamber of physicians.
