Siyemi Learning was set up in 2006 as an independent CME provider in Europe. Its primary scope of activity is to work collaboratively with medical professionals and education partners in the development, presentation and accreditation management of educational activities taking place primarily in Europe, but also globally.
Siyemi Learning has worked on over 300 hours of CME accredited meetings and 60 hours of accredited e-learning (accredited by EACCME, EBAC, EU*ACME, EACIC, nationally across Europe including France, Germany, Greece, Italy, Spain, The Netherlands, UK and Canada, and in joint-providership with ACCME accredited providers in the US), primarily for European doctors (pan-European and National), but also has experience of CME in Latin America, South East Asia, Japan, India, the Middle East as well as North America.
Siyemi Learning is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
In December 2015 Siyemi Learning became the first non-US, and is currently the only European organisation that is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) as a provider of continuing medical education for physicians. It was successfully reaccredited in December 2017, which is valid until November 2021. ACCME accreditation seeks to assure the medical community and the public that Siyemi Learning provides physicians with relevant, effective, practice-based continuing medical education that that supports health care quality improvement.
The ACCME employs a rigorous, multilevel process for evaluating institutions’ continuing medical education programmes according to the high accreditation standards adopted by all seven ACCME member organizations. These organizations of medicine in the US are the American Board of Medical Specialties, the American Hospital Association, the American Medical Association, the Association for Hospital Medical Education, the Association of American Medical Colleges, the Council of Medical Specialty Societies, and the Federation of State Medical Boards of the US, Inc.
