Continuing Medical Education (CME) Information

Jointly provided by The France Foundation and the Kidney Cancer Association.


This educational activity is intended for medical oncologists and urologists who treat patients with kidney cancer. Fellows, trainees, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other healthcare professionals involved in the management of kidney cancer are invited to participate.


Education and interaction surrounding the space of renal cell carcinoma are paramount to improving patient care. This program is targeted to physicians, advocates, and researchers to help promote learning and collaboration for advancement in the renal cancer space.


Upon completion of this course, the participants should be able to:

  • Characterize the various therapies currently available for locally advanced and metastatic renal cell carcinoma
  • Identify the novel approaches to non-clear RCC patient management
  • Understand the role of the tumor microenvironment in kidney cancer
  • Discuss how to design biomarker driven clinical trials in kidney cancer


In support of improving patient care, this activity has been planned and implemented by The France Foundation and the Kidney Cancer Association. The France Foundation is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.


The France Foundation designates this live activity for a maximum of 13.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The 2023 IKCS: Europe – International Kidney Cancer Symposium, Edinburgh, United Kingdom, 21/04/2023-22/04/2023 has been accredited by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME®) with 10 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 at www.ama-assn.org/education/earn-credit-participation-international-activities

Live educational activities, occurring outside of Canada, recognised by the UEMS-EACCME® for ECMEC®s are deemed to be Accredited Group Learning Activities (Section 1) as defined by the Maintenance of Certification Program of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada.
