For the third time, the German Association for Internal Medicine and Messe Düsseldorf will organize the MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE during the MEDICA trade fair. This conference offers participants a unique opportunity to gather and exchange information about new technologies and their medical application in the framework of an advanced scientific training course during the world’s leading trade fair for medical technology. MEDICA will take place from November 14 – 17, 2016 at the fairgrounds in Düsseldorf, Germany

With the motto “Science meets Medical Technology”, the conference will be geared towards professionals from all medical segments – from clinics and practices to anyone interested in medicine and medical technology in science, research, development and manufacturing. Scientific lectures will offer overviews or in-depth information while practical sessions will educate physicians about daily patient care.

A core aspect of all events is the reciprocal exchange between physicians and industry representatives in order to address the needs of both sides. In addition to the interdisciplinary offerings, the conference also provides an international information and networking platform with the majority of the events held in English.

Each of the four MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE days will have a specific thematic focus. On Monday November 14, the topics will be “New Operative Techniques in Surgery”. In addition to innovative techniques and future visions, current standards of surgical methods will be presented in a diverse and compact form.

The sessions on November 15 will address “Imaging and Interventional Procedures” such as magnetic resonance tomography and sonography. These procedures find application throughout medicine in diagnosis and therapy and are important elements of daily outpatient and inpatient clinical patient care.

The third conference day (November 16) will focus on “Internal Medicine: Future Technologies and Remote Patient Management”. Experts will discuss questions such as “What does telemedicine mean for chronic diseases such as diabetes” and “To what extent can digital solutions such as remote monitoring in case of heart failure help to avoid a hospital stay?”

The scientific program of the event´s final day (November 17) will look at “Diagnostics in Internal Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, Toxicology and Hygiene”. Determination of laboratory parameters, correct interpretation and connection to individual clinical symptoms will be the discussion topics.

Conference day passes can be purchased online in advance and include the visit of the MEDICA trade fair on the same day. The conference is structured to end at 3:30 pm daily to give participants the opportunity to walk to the neighboring exhibition halls and see new the technologies at MEDICA 2016 (the show closes at 6:30 pm).
