Continuing Medical Education (CME)
In the past, FOCIS has made it possible for meeting participants to obtain CME credit for attending the annual meeting. In order to enable all those involved in the research and treatment of immune-mediated diseases to participate in the exchange of ideas that contribute to the forward motion of the field, FOCIS will not offer CME credit for FOCIS 2017. Certificates of attendance will be available upon request.
