We regret to inform you that the 6th McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine (MIRCIM) 2020 has been postponed to take place in May in 2021.
More information will follow shortly.

 

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to attend the 6th McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine (MIRCIM), which will take place in the beautiful historic city of Kraków, Poland, on 24 - 26 September 2020.

MIRCIM has been conceived and developed by the McMaster University Department of Medicine, the birthplace of evidence-based medicine (EBM) and problem-based learning (PBL), and the Polish Institute for Evidence Based Medicine. It is organized in collaboration with the European Federation of Internal Medicine and the Jagiellonian University Medical College, and in partnership with over 30 national societies of internal medicine from around the world.

The three-day course will be filled with information-packed lectures delivered by an outstanding assembly of speakers who are world-renowned experts in their fields, from authors of clinical practice guidelines to researchers behind breakthrough trials that shape the modern standards in medicine. Our aim has been to deliver up-to-date and reliable knowledge that is useful to general internists, subspecialists, hospitalists, family physicians, residents and fellows in training specializing in internal medicine – and we are proud to say that we have achieved this goal. The participants of past MIRCIM editions highly praised the quality of lectures, topic selection and social events.

The lectures will be delivered on May 8 and 9. On the first day of MIRCIM, May 7, the participants can take part in the conference Clinical Cases in Internal Medicine: Learning Through Practice, which is part of the Best Case Report Contest, and also choose from a number of clinical hands-on workshops. On May 8 a special parallel session called EFIM Academic Day will take place, a contribution from the European Federation of Internal Medicine.

The main venue of MIRCIM is the ICE Kraków Congress Centre, located conveniently in the city center and close to Kraków’s famous tourist attractions. The time spent in Kraków during the course will offer a myriad of opportunities to experience the rich cultural life and remarkable heritage that the city boasts. We look forward to seeing you in Kraków in May 2020.
