Continuing Medical Education (CME)

In the past, FOCIS has made it possible for meeting participants to obtain CME credit for attending our courses. 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 the Advanced Course. Certificates of attendance will be availalbe upon request.
