Welcome to the 14th newsletter from EFIM that that continues to bring you information on recent activities and links to important aspects on our website.

We had several successful events behinds us and we are working intensively on the preparations for the European Congress of Internal Medicine in Wiesbaden, Germany from 30 Aug – 1 Sep. http://www.ecim2018.eu/. 
Please spread the message and promote ECIM 2018 through your professional network and share all the information with your national society members.

The abstract submission deadline has been extended till 13th May, so you still have an opportunity to present your work at the congress!

In March, we held another successful EFIM Day at our Headquarters in Brussels where our two keynote speakers gave remarkable presentations on clinical practice guidelines and knowledge translations to the participants. Presenting and discussing EFIM activities during the ACP Conference in New Orleans was a big success.  The implementation of the new European Curriculum of Internal Medicine in collaboration with the national societies will begin shortly. More information about several EFIM projects will follow in the coming months.

I am looking forward to seeing you in Wiesbaden soon.                      


Due to the popular demand we decided to extend the abstract submission to 13 May 2018.
