The 8th EFIM Day was held at the Holiday Inn hotel on Friday 13 October gathering together 55 participants from 23 national societies of EFIM from Europe and outside sharing experiences and exchanging ideas.
Prof. Ricardo Gomez Huelgas, EFIM President and EFIM Executive Committee were delighted to welcome and address all the Presidents and the Society representatives.
Prof. Gomez Huelgas presented the activities and achievements following the ECIM 2023 congress in Athens and thanked all the representatives for their active contribution. New initiatives and projects were presented including the launch of new Clinical Working Groups, upcoming re-elections/elections at the GA in Istanbul and the call for interest to host ESIM Summer School in 2025 – 26/27.

Updates were given on the progress of the ECIM 2024 in Istanbul as well as personal address was delivered by Prof. Agnelli on the new impact factor of the journal reaching IF 8.00 and general progress of  EJIM.

Highlight of the meeting was the keynote address by Nathalie Moll, EFPIA Director General, who delivered a compelling presentation that focused on access to innovative drugs,  pharmaceutical innovation, public health, and healthcare policy. Her speech addressed the critical role of pharmaceutical companies in advancing healthcare and EFPIA’s contributions to improving patient outcomes.

Engaging discussions covering a wide range of topics related to internal medicine, patient care, on a national level were discussed during the presentations of the national societies. We had the pleasure to learn more at this meeting from the Dutch Society, French Society, German Society, Norwegian Society and the Romanian Society and we would like to thank the Presidents for delivering the presentations. These sessions allowed participants to exchange ideas and best practices and address critical issues in internal medicine in Europe. We will repeat this once again next year when other countries will be invited to present.
Prof. Rijk Gans informed the participants on the progress of the European Exam of Internal Medicine and the selected supplier to organise the exam, RCPI; as well as the collaboration between EFIM and UEMS through EBIM.

All the presentations for which we received consent to share are available for a download below:
