Welcome Letter

It is our pleasure and honour to invite you to the 20th European Congress of Internal Medicine (ECIM) taking place on 10 – 12 March in Malaga, Spain. 

The successful ECIM 2021 Virtual Congress demonstrated that we need a place to connect and share our experiences now more than ever. It is our priority to facilitate acquiring expert knowledge, learning, and sharing experiences and discussing the latest breakthrough in the clinical areas related to internal medicine.

ECIM 2022 will once again focus on sharing innovative developments and providing a comprehensive overview of state-of-the art treatment of common conditions in internal medicine practice. The slogan of ECIM 2022, “Internal Medicine in the Front Line of Health Care”, highlights the leading role that internal medicine plays in providing health care to communities, particularly in the current environment. The current COVID-19 pandemic has confirmed the Internal Medicine must be one of the cornerstones of the European health care systems. Our holistic person-centered approach has been crucial to understand this new complex and multisystemic disease, to provide a comprehensive care to patients and to assure an efficient use of the resources.

We are excited to bring together physicians, young researchers, and leaders in the field, and provide a lively platform to learn and share their knowledge and views in a creative and engaging setting at the beautiful city of Malaga. The three-day programme built around excellent scientific abstract presentations, educational sessions and cutting-edge lectures given by experts in internal medicine will guarantee a memorable congress.

Malaga is one of Spain’s oldest cities and a recognized cultural hub bursting with places to explore. From the attention-grabbing Pompidou Centre and ever-popular Museum Picasso to the street-art-cloaked streets of its edgy Soho district. The hallmarks of Malaga’s its rich past are scattered across the city.

We look forward to welcoming you to ECIM 2022 in the exciting and historical city of Malaga.
