It is with great anticipation that we present you with this invitation to the 34th World Congress of Internal Medicine for 2018. This meeting will be held in the beautiful city of Cape Town in South Africa at the International Convention Centre from 18 to 21 October 2018.
All aspects of Internal Medicine will be covered during parallel sessions presented by an exciting faculty drawn from experts across the international community. The aim of the meeting is to provide an excellent academic programme for the general physician but of a standard that the specialty groups such as Rheumatologists, Cardiologists, Pulmonologists and so on would also benefit. We plan to have posters from investigators in clinical as well as research areas and “Meet the Expert” sessions where we will encourage interactive discussions using interesting case studies to illustrate clinical challenges. We will endeavour to present state of the art symposia with updates on recent guidelines and developments across the spectrum of Internal Medicine.
Cape Town offers the visitor an array of tourist attractions and sporting possibilities for the adventurous. You are spoilt for choice between the sea, mountains, rivers and wine routes as well as amazing shopping experiences once the academic programme is completed. South Africa has many direct flights from across the globe so we can ensure you arrive with the minimum inconvenience to enjoy your visit. We will be reserving hotels within walking distance of the Cape Town International Convention Centre where the congress will be held. This is a world class convention centre offering superb audio-visual support, lecture halls and breakout rooms to accommodate all a variety of needs. It is close to the Waterfront, a major tourist attraction with many restaurants and shopping malls to cater for all your needs. We believe you will never forget this amazing experience and we invite you to reserve the dates, ensure you plan for early registration and we look forward to hosting you in our beautiful country.
