We would like to thank all the members of the EFIM national societies who joined us in Wiesbaden. This year’s General Assembly was held on 30 August at the RheinMain Congress Centre in Wiesbaden, in conjunction with the 17th European Congress of Internal Medicine.

Eighty-four General Assembly members, Young Internists and Executive Committee members, representing 32 national societies from 30 EFIM member countries, participated in the EFIM General Assembly. The EFIM President, Prof. Runolfur Palsson, welcomed the participants to Wiesbaden. Prof. Palsson gave a short overview of the EFIM activities and the achievements of the past year, focusing on the appointment and the selection of the new EJIM Editor-in-Chief, the progress of the EFIM working groups, the continuous work of the European Board of Internal Medicine (EBIM), the EFIM communication strategy and the hard work of the EFIM Executive Committee members aimed at increasing the visibility of EFIM and shaping the organisation. Presentation of the current financial affairs and accounts by EFIM Treasurer, Dr. Valentin Kokorin, followed and the end-of-year accounts were approved.

The meeting continued with the elections of the EFIM President-Elect. Two very strong candidates presented their future vision and plans for leading EFIM, Prof. Luis Campos from the Portuguese Society of Internal Medicine and Dr. Dror Dicker from the Israeli Society of Internal Medicine. Following voting according to the EFIM Statutes, the members of the General Assembly elected Dr. Dror Dicker as the next EFIM President-Elect.
