In the middle of Austria’s largest family ski resort is the Austrian village of Lech am Arlberg and our venue the Hotel Sonnenberg. Nestled below the massive mountain peaks, ample snow creates a natural winter wonderland as far as the eye can see. Skiers can reach the slopes in a single step to begin heading up into the mountains for the spectacular views that will take your breath away.

There is more to this location than skiing with winter hiking, snowshoeing, Sledging, tobogganing and bobsleighing or why not take a romantic ride in a horse-drawn sleigh. There is also a beautiful spa area and great food on offer too. For over a century, guaranteed snow, warm hospitality and state-of-the-art technology have attracted skiers from all over the world to the “cradle of alpine skiing”. What more reason to visit the wonders Arlberg has to offer.

Relevant information

What is a CME activity? A Continuing Medical Education(CME) activity serves to maintain, develop, or increase the knowledge, skills, and professional performance and relationships that a physician uses to provide services for patients, the public, or the profession.

Why do physicians need continuing medical education (CME) credit? Physicians use CME credit to demonstrate that they have participated in educational activities and obtained CME credit to document meeting the requirements of state medical boards, medical specialty societies, specialty boards, hospital medical staffs, the Joint Commission, insurance groups, and others

Who accredits the Course? An application has been made to the UEMS EACCME® for CME accreditation of this event. Accreditation by the EACCME means that the CME/CPD activity provided is of high scientific value, is free of commercial bias and promotes active adult learning. This is of paramount importance to doctors who need to report to their National Accreditation Authority on their CME/CPD activity over a certain period of time, and this even more now that many national systems are (becoming) mandatory and not voluntary. By attending an EACCME accredited event, they will be able to obtain European CME credits (ECMEC) which are recognised not only in a majority of European countries (with which the EACCME has signed agreements), but also in the USA and Canada. By handing in their EACCME certificate to their National Accreditation Authority, their credits will automatically be recognised and converted into national credits.

What documentation does a physician receive for participating in a certified CME activity provided by an accredited CME provider? A CME certificate will be issued and can be used to prove attendance.
