We had several successful events behinds us and we are working intensively on the preparations for the following European Congress of Internal Medicine in Lisbon from 29 to 31 August.
EFIM continues to develop new projects and activities and I’m proud to say that we have several accomplishments to celebrate, thanks to the tireless efforts of our Executive committee members, Young Internists and all the actively involved EFIM member societies. 

We are strengthening our European relationship, as members of the European Health Coalition and we were invited to attend a think-tank initiative of the European Federation of Pharmaceutical Industries and Associates (EFPIA).
The European Journal of Internal Medicine, the flagship of EFIM has reached new impact factor in 2019, 3.66 which went up by +11.5% from the 2017 ranking EJINME at 27th place in the category of General Internal Medicine.

We have launched a new working group on Critical Appraisal of Guidelines, while those already established are actively working. Not to mention the initiatives of the YI Internists, such as the European Advances School in Internal Medicine. 
Our goal is to lay a common foundation that will ensure continued growth, and create a strong force of European internists.

As we look toward the autumn, we’re excited to be hosting another succesful congress in Lisbon. More than 2000 abstracs have been received and 1600 registrations have been processed already.
Please don't forget to spread the message and promote ECIM 2019 through your professional network and share all the information with your national society members.

I wish everyone a happy, healthy and safe summer and we hope to meet you all in Lisbon.
