Education, Research and the development of Internal Medicine are at the core of the EFIM mission. The European Schools of Internal Medicine, the annual Clinical Research Course and the Congress of Internal Medicine have gone from strength to strength bringing together Internists from across Europe and around the world. In partnership with the member countries, EFIM will continue to build a programme of events that will raise the profile of Internal Medicine and encourage collaborative working for Internists across Europe.
