On behalf of the European Federation of Internal Medicine, it is our privilege and pleasure to invite you to the 17th European Congress of Internal Medicine taking place in Wiesbaden, Germany. The congress will be held in the RheinMain CongressCenter from 30 August to 1 September 2018.
The European Congress of Internal Medicine – ECIM – is a major event where physicians, scientists and other experts in the field of Internal Medicine exchange the latest information on advances in science and clinical practice.
ECIM is a platform for the interdisciplinary interaction of European internists, including those practising related specialities, as well as for young internists to share their experiences and networking.
As well as the presentation of the results of clinical and basic research, the ECIM 2018 will focus on innovative and comprehensive overview of the treatment of complex, multimorbid patients. Therefore, the theme of ECIM 2018 is “The art of managing clinical complexity: An integrated, patient-centred approach”.
Particular areas of interest include the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of the principal features of metabolic syndrome and the associated spectrum of cardiovascular disease and other comorbid conditions. Gender- and age-related aspects, the emergence of digital medicine, and the impact of health economics will be highlighted.
We look forward to welcoming you to Wiesbaden, one of the oldest spa towns in Europe. Wiesbaden is also the ‘Wiege (Cradle)’ of German Internal Medicine congresses; the German Society of Internal Medicine was founded at the first congress in Wiesbaden in 1882. Wiesbaden is a superb meeting place, located centrally in the Rhine-Main region, with world famous wine-producing areas nearby and a deserved reputation as an attractive tourism destination.
Welcome to ECIM in Wiesbaden 2018.
