Thank you all for your participation at the 1st Virtual EFIM General Assembly held on Friday, 25 September.
Seventy two representatives took place at the virtual General Assembly representing thirty EFIM members' societies.
There were several societies not present at the General Assembly: Estonian Society of Internal Medicine, Internal Medicine Society of Greece, Association of Physicians of Malta, and the following Associate members: Lebanese Society of Internal Medicine and Tunisian Society of Internal Medicine.
We would like to thank all our societies on the active participation and the approval of EFIM planned projects and updated Statutes and Bylaws. We would like to congratulate the German Society on the publication of the Physicians’ Codex that was fully endorsed by the EFIM National Societies. The publication is available for download on EFIM homepage.

EFIM is already working intensively on the next annual congress in virtual environment taking place in March 18 – 20,  2021.
In the meantime a number of webinars are being planned by the EFIM Working Groups and EFIM Executive Committee in the coming months. Virtual events have proven as a strong connection to continue to engage with each other.
We are satisfied that virtually we can reach even more colleagues quicker involving everyone in the internal medicine community network.
