Dear EFIM Colleagues,

The last few months were difficult for everyone. We were doing our part to assure the control and ultimate defeat and prevention of COVID-19.
EFIM Executive Committee organised several webinars and held the 1st Virtual General Assembly successfully approving several important items.
We were glad to have all our members present during the General Assembly discussing all important issues concerning the future activities of EFIM.

The Executive Committee is busy finalizing the scientific programme for the next ECIM 2021.The virtual format of the ECIM 2021 is promising new developments aimed at improving patient care.  In response to the needs of the moment, the scientific programme will include dedicated COVID-19 tracks. The motto of the congress: “Internal medicine in a pandemic world: when one size fits all” is focusing on highlighting how the COVID-19 pandemic has stressed how the internal medicine truly is a cornerstone of the healthcare system. One size fit all refers to broad skills of internists who are generally able to adjust and assume a crucial role in caring for sick people in a variety of healthcare settings.

Make sure you register to the congress and join the colleagues around Europe digitally! You will find wide new possibilities for multidimensional learning, innovative web tools, global audience, target topics and a fully virtual exhibition area.  We will create internists’ community in the virtual world where members can share, learn, and cooperate.

We are looking forward to seeing you soon.

EFIM joined 11 associations to launch the European Alliance for Value in Health. The Alliance represents a broad group of European associations representing patients, scientific and professional societies, healthcare managers, hospitals, regional health authorities and life-science industries.
We are in a pivotal moment for European health systems, when the COVID-19 pandemic has put health systems under severe stress and added to the already existing pressures stemming from ageing populations and chronic diseases. Health systems are complex, often fragmented and heavy with legacy. To a great extent they are still operating on a logic from an older era, built around treating acute illness and disease, and have therefore been struggling to meet the needs coming from today’s demographic, societal and technological developments.
