World Congress of Internal Medicine Meeting
August 22-25, 2016
The World Congress of Internal Medicine meeting took place in Bali, Indonesia from August 22-25, 2016 and featured a robust 2.5 days of workshops and lectures on a variety of internal medicine topics. It was well attended with over 2,700 attendees from various parts of the world. The quality of the presentations was generally good. There were also excellent poster sessions. There were over 500 posters, 100 research papers, 15 workshops and 30 lectures. The range was from tropical diseases to diabetes to my talk on global climate change and health.
The ACP was well represented with past ACP presidents Virginia Hood, MBBS, MACP and Bill Hall, MD, MACP, and myself each giving two presentations. Dr. Hood spoke about chronic kidney disease, Dr. Hall on geriatric care and I spoke about health and global climate change. We were on a panel on clinical decision making. Dr. Hood talked about High Value Care, Dr. Hall on methods of learning and Annals of Internal Medicine as a resource and I presented some college priorities, membership, the mission and two cases using DynaMed Plus as a clinical tool. All talks were well received.
The issues of importance to them are very familiar. They included the cost of care, cost of new medications, an aging population, primary care at the center of care, public health insurance, anti-microbial resistance and chronic disease management.
The ACP booth was staffed by ACP Director of International Programs Marisa McCarren who was quite busy discussing the College benefits and products. A common question for us from the younger physicians was how to get a training position in the United States.
Overall it was a successful meeting with good ACP representation.
European Federation of Internal Medicine Meeting
September 2-3, 2016
The European Federation of Internal Medicine met in Amsterdam on September 2-3, 2016. The meeting was attended by about 1,200 internists over two days. There were interesting presentations from aging issues, high value care, global disasters, microbiota and obesity and measuring quality and cost of health care. I spoke on the health effects of global climate change that was very well received. The attendees were alarmed by the magnitude and breathe of potential health effects if mitigation measures are not implemented.
Frank Bosch, MD, FACP and Mark Kramer, MD, FACP, organized and conducted an excellent meeting. The new president and I spoke about more collaboration between EFIM and ACP, especially on issues such as global climate change and choosing wisely.
