EACCME® Accreditation:

The Robotic Skills Course (CC-ERUS) has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 35 European CME credits (ECMEC®s). Each medical specialist should claim only those hours of credit that he/she actually spent in the educational activity.

Through an agreement between the Union Européenne des Médecins Spécialistes and the American Medical Association, physicians may convert EACCME® credits to an equivalent number of AMA PRA Category 1 Credits. Information on the process to convert EACCME® credit to AMA credit can be found here.


Pre-course requirements:

None. This is a beginner course for robot-naïve urology surgeons who want to learn to perform a robot-assisted prostatectomy independently and effectively.

  1. If you are a fellow in one of the ERUS robotic host centers and have been enrolled in the six month CC-ERUS validated training pathway by EAU, this 5-day course is the mandatory kick-off. You don't have to register via Orsi Academy. All arrangements are done via ERUS/EAU (a.terberg@uroweb.org)
  2. If you are not a fellow in one of the ERUS robotic host centers, you can still enroll in this Robotic Skills Course. Thus, it serves as a stand-alone skills course without involvement of ERUS/EAU, therefore no ERUS/EAU certificate can be obtained, only an Orsi Academy certificate will be received.
