WCIM 2016 – The 33rd World Congress of Internal Medicine

Bali Nusa Dua Convention Center (BNDCC), Bali, Indonesia

The 33rd World Congress of Internal Medicine (WCIM) was designed to promote scientific knowledge, medical advancement, and the delivery of effective healthcare in the field of Internal Medicine. The scientific lectures were presented and moderated by national and international leaders in the field. This world congress was an outstanding event gathering thousands of participants in beautiful Bali.

The high-tech convention center was ideally located to the conveniences of all participants. The Organizing Committee, and its numerous collaborators within the organization committee prepared a meeting covering all aspects of Internal Medicine. The high quality of the program was very much appreciated.

The Congress was a highlight to anyone who has an interest in the broad field of General Internal Medicine and in specialized Internal Medicine.

The participants took the opportunity to network with their national and international colleagues. The program offered a superb opportunity for physicians and medical specialists to attend expert updates on specialty areas outside their own specialty. Fortunately, many participants had some days left to incorporate a pre- or post-conference tour in beautiful Bali.

In addition to that, the World Congress of Internal Medicine is always a very special event, a «coming together» of physicians from all over the world. It is also a milestone in regard to Internal Medicine, or in other words…, «Internal Medicine goes global». The World Congress of Internal Medicine is the ideal place for exchanging knowledge in Internal Medicine, and to discuss different health care systems.

In the name of the International Society of Internal Medicine I would like to thank the Organizing Committee again for the hard work!

Dr. H.P. Kohler, Secretary General, ISIM
