Abu Dhabi forum to discuss advances in medicine
Abu Dhabi, February 5, 2013
A major conference on advances in medicine, which will open in Abu Dhabi next week, is expected to draw healthcare professionals from across the GCC, Middle Eastern countries and North America.
The Advances in Medicine and Subspecialties (AIMS) Conference, from February 13 to 15, will be inaugurated by Sheikh Nahayan Mabarak Al Nahayan, Minister of Higher Education and Scientific Research, at the Jumeirah Etihad Towers.
The conference is endorsed by SEHA and Sheikh Khalifa Medical City (SKMC).
Subspecialties of medicine, including cardiovascular diseases, diabetes and endocrinology, infectious diseases, nephrology, gastroenterology, hematology, oncology, respirology, rheumatology and neurology are amongst the theme sessions that will be discussed at the conference.
CME accreditation will be provided from Health Authority of Abu Dhabi (HAAD) and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (provider of CME credits in the USA) to healthcare professionals and allies - including doctors in internal medicine, all of its subspecialties, general practitioners, family physicians, medical residents and fellows.
David Bronson, president of the American College of Physicians - one of the largest organization of internal medicine physicians, will shed light on the challenges to internal medicine in the US and internationally.
According to Bronson, only 10 to 12 percent of recent IM residency graduates are choosing traditional IM careers, with the majority pursing medical subspecialties and hospital medicine. Medical school debt, income disparities and perceived status are fuelling the change.
The conference program will be spread over 3 days of main events with two plenary lectures on each day, followed by three “Theme Sessions” comprising 3-4 lectures each from a list of distinguished local and international faculty, many of whom are involved in cutting-edge research in their fields and are a part of international guideline panels.
