MEDICA Conferences & Forums:
Conference Programme Relaunch
The conference programme for MEDICA in Düsseldorf, the leading worldwide medical market and information platform, is undergoing a full relaunch. The content repositioning for MEDICA 2013 (20 - 23 November) is designed to closely dovetail the programme with the themes of the specialist fair that are relevant to medical users and to expand the international side of the programme. That's why we're changing the name to MEDICA Conferences & Forums - a name which is more common internationally for conferences, meetings and conventions.
"The MEDICA conference, which regularly attracts several thousand participants until now has only been well-known inside Germany in Germany. But now over half of the visitors to MEDICA come from abroad. This continuous increase in international interest does justice to the programme, which has been professionally reviewed and fine-tuned with the help of famous experts," Joachim Schäfer, Managing Director of Messe Düsseldorf explains about the reorientation.
The key points of the programme have been set by a prestigious expert panel. In this way, under the title of MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE, courses that were well-attended in previous years form the basis of general medical topics and practical courses on equipment for example, which are still certified with CME points for continuing medical professional development. There are also seminars on subjects spanning different sectors, which are highly relevant for specialists of different fields, such as emergency medicine or gender-specific medicine for example.
Meanwhile, English-language parts of the programme in the Congress Center Düsseldorf (CCD South) this year already include a series of lectures on current aspects of individualised medicine, an international conference on disaster and military medicine, and a first-class event for international sports medicine specialists. The themes of this conference range from preventive approaches to sports medicine, right through to therapeutic procedures, and include the use of modern electromedical devices.
