Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology - can now be completed entirely online

EAS Certificate of Excellence in Lipidology (Update 2.0) is the Society's CME-accredited online teaching programme on EAS Academy. Participants work their way through online modules that cover developments in clinical lipidology, with focus on its role in cardiovascular disease.

Under usual circumstances, participants in the Programme are required to attend a face-to-face Course or Congress to complete it. But current circumstances are anything but usual, and with meeting and travel restrictions in place due to COVID-19, face-to-face courses are out of the question for the time being.

We have therefore waived the requirement to attend a live event, and introduced an additional online module to the Programme. So now you can complete the  Certificate of Excellence Programme in full and collect your CME credits without leaving home.

Why not spend some time exploring the Society’s online educational resource, EAS Academy. Lectures recorded at EAS 2019 Congress are now available Open Access.
