Due to health risks relating to the spread of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), the 6th McMaster Review Course in Internal Medicine and the 6th EFIM Day that were going to be held in Kraków, Poland, has been postponed to take place in autumn 2020.
Coronaviruses are important human and animal pathogens. Common human coronaviruses are responsible for approximately one-third of mild to moderate community-acquired upper respiratory tract infections in adults, like the common cold. This information should not be confused with Coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19). COVID-19 is the third coronavirus outbreak following the SARS (Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome) and MERS (Middle East Respiratory Syndrome) outbreaks in the 21st century. COVID-19 is a type of illness that can mainly affect the respiratory system.
The world of internal medicine will gather on the 6th McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine, Kraków, Poland on May 7–9, 2020.
The 3-day EBM course features lectures delivered by outstanding experts, from authors of clinical practice guidelines to researchers behind the breakthrough trials that shape the modern standards in medicine. On the first day, May 7, participants will be able to choose from a number of clinical workshops as well as take part in the Best Case Report Contest. On May 8, in parallel to MIRCIM lectures, the EFIM Day will take place.
As already announced, the 6th EFIM Day will take place at the ICE Congress Centre in Krakow on Friday 8 May, 2020 in conjunction with the McMaster Course - MIRICIM 2020. We would like to extent an invitation to the Presidents, the Board Members and the Young Internists of EFIM National Societies to join EFIM in discussing different Internal Medicine’s topics on a European level including EFIM new projects and current activities.
In order to be better informed about the training and practice issues within Internal Medicine, the European Board of Internal Medicine has created a survey on training in internal medicine aimed at current trainees or those who have completed training within the last ten years. It is hoped that the survey will inform future curriculum updates and identify subjects for future faculty training projects.
There are approximately 100 questions that will take 30 minutes to complete.
Around 80 participants, Presidents, Board Members and Young Internists gathered together to attend the 5th EFIM Day at the EFIM Headquartes in Brussels on 15 March 2019. The 5th EFIM Day focused on the hot topic, “Physicians’ Burnout: Causes, Consequences, and Solutions, featuring a keynote lecture by Prof. Dr.
