All scheduled for Thursday, June 20. These courses can be added to your Conference registration, but please be informed that RIMS also offers you the possibility to sign up for a teaching course only (without booking a ticket for the entire Conference).



We are happy to announce that the RIMS Annual Conference received 14 European CME credits (ECMEC) from the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). Please find below the breakdown of ECMEC's per day:

            20.06.2019      4 credits
            21.06.2019      5 credits
            22.06.2019      5 credits

The EACCME awards ECMEC's on the basis on 1 ECMEC for one hour of CME with a maximum of 8 ECMEC's per day. Each participant can only receive the number of credits he/she is entitled to according to his/her actual participation at the event once he/she has completed the feedback form.


We look forward to welcoming rehabilitation physicians and neurologists, nurses and therapists (e.g. exercise physiologists, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, psychologists, neuropsychologists, social workers, speech and language therapists) and all professionals involved or interested in MS rehabilitation research and practice.

Let's meet in Ljubljana!


Yours sincerely,
