The 18th European Congress of Internal Medicine took place in Lisbon, between the 29th and the 31st of August, lead by ECIM 2019 President Prof. Luís Campos and EFIM President Prof. Nicola Montano, and it was a highlight in the history of EFIM congresses. More than two thousand participants attended ECIM 2019 beating all previous congress attendees records, highlighting the 2500 works in the competition, 650 of which are research. The theme of the congress was “Innovation in Healthcare: New Opportunities for Internal Medicine” and the choice of this theme was motivated by the conviction that the growth of the global burden of chronic diseases and multimorbidity, induced by the increasing life expectancy, the trend of overspecialization and the rising healthcare costs underscores the need for the efficient, versatile and holistic approach that characterizes internal medicine.
