The 19th  European Congress of Internal Medicine (ECIM) took place from 18–20 March 2021. As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic and for the first time in its history the congress was held online. For over 1100 specialists around theglobe, the congress provided the same great opportunity and an outstanding forum to exchange ideas, network with fellow professionals, acquire expert knowledge, learn, and share successful experiences and discuss the latest breakthrough in the clinical areas related to internal medicine.
The theme of ECIM 2021, "Internal Medicine in a pandemic world: when one size fits all", reflected the importance of health promotion strategies in the context of disease management. The COVID-19 pandemic has highlighted how internal medicine truly is a cornerstone of the healthcare system. Internists worldwide have responded to the outbreakby working hard at all levels of the health services, including in emergency rooms, general wards, critical care internalmedicine departments as well as in primary care.
Internal medicine is the one size that fits all!
The congress brought together physicians, young researchers and leaders in the field of internal medicine. Five pre-congress workshops, five plenary sessions, twenty-one parallel sessions, 23 live Q&A sessions, four oral presentation sessions, 3 poster discussion sessions and award ceremonies were showcased. Two new successful formats were introduced: short scientific sessions as well as joint sessions with several international associations. The scientific program was awarded 15 European CME credits by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

All sessions remain available on demand for all participants until 20 June 2021. If you missed the congress, you may still register, enjoy the full scientific programme and get CME credits!

It proved to be a truly international event with participants from 68 countries around the world, over 1100 abstracts were submitted and the quality of the scientific programme was judged to be very high.
