Is the BSH 2020 Virtual CME accredited?
How do I claim my CME credits?
You can receive up to 13 credits. To get a certificate for the number of hours of content you have watched, you will first need to complete the post-event survey that will be emailed to you. Once you have submitted your survey, you will need to then enter the event platform and tick the box in your profile that asks if you are ready to claim your CPD points. Once you tick this box, your total hours watched at that point in time will then be calculated. Please do not tick the box if you plan on watching more content after this, as those hours will not be counted towards your CPD certificate. Certificates will be sent out every two weeks and are claimable until end of February 2021. If you do not receive your certificate before February 2021 and you have ticked the box to do so, you will be welcome to get in touch with us at BSH2020@mci-group.com
