CongressMed is a Tel Aviv based company specializing in the development and enhancement of medical education through concept congresses. CongressMed congresses are fully devoted to controversial issues in a debate format, aiming to reach consensus on unresolved clinical dilemmas in a wide range of medical and scientific fields.
Educational needs and expected outcomes
The goal of the congresses is to reach actual and agreed-upon answers to some of these controversies, even when proofs are lacking, and to reach current conclusions to the ongoing debates in the field through evidence-based medicine or through expert opinion, and speaker-audience discussions. Reaching consensus through discussions and publishing consensus papers are also encouraged.
CongressMed works with EXCEMED - Excellence in Medical Education (www.excemed.org) – in obtaining CME/CPD accreditation for the scientific programs. EXCEMED submits the main congress program of the each congress for CME/CPD accreditation by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). The EACCME is an institution of the European Union of Medical Specialists (UEMS): www.uems.net
The CME/CPD accreditation awarded is valid for the main congress program only and does not cover the industry-sponsored symposia.
