    Goals / remit

The Standing Committee of European Doctors (CPME) aims to promote the highest standards of medical training and medical practice in order to achieve the highest quality of health care for all citizens of Europe.
CPME is also concerned with the promotion of public health, the relationship between patients and doctors and the free movement of doctors within the European Union.
CPME represents the National Medical Associations of 28 countries in Europe (EU and EFTA) and works closely with the National Medical Associations of countries that have applied for EU membership as well as specialized European medical associations.
It is an international, not for profit association under Belgian Law.
To achieve its goals, CPME co-operates (proactively) with the Institutions of the European Union. Policies are being set both in answer to developments in Europe as well as by taking the lead in matters regarding the profession and patient care.
CPME offers broad expertise in matters related to medicine and the medical profession.
CPME is directed by a Board that is elected by the General Assembly for three years. The President and the Executive Committee are elected from the Board members also for a period of three years.
