35th EACTA Annual Congress

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, in order to enable everyone to join the event, the Grenoble congress will be held ONLINE and on new dates: November 4-6, 2020.

Dear All,

Because of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the EACTA has decided to hold the annual congress of December 2020 as a virtual meeting on November 4-6, 2020.
In this period of great uncertainty, it appears wiser to cancel a face-to-face reunion. We are very disappointed not to be able to welcome you in in the city of Grenoble, the capital of the French Alps.
However, let us be serendipitous about the unexpected twist of events which challenges us to find creative and groundbreaking solutions   Instead of being together in Grenoble this year, the congress goes virtual. Being 100% online and no travelling being needed, we can also take solace in the fact that EACTA 2020 goes green!
It is a new way of making such events with further opportunities and we are working hard to make this online meeting a success with the contribution of colleagues from all over the world and a very stimulating program.

We stand more than ever united in adversity and in diversity.
Information will be coming in the next weeks.
Wishing you the best of health and looking forward to connecting with you for this outstanding event.

Come and join us virtually in November 2020!

Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities.

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
