3rd McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine (MIRCIM)

February 2, 2017

On May 12 and 13 (Friday and Saturday), 2017, the 3rd McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine (MIRCIM) will take place in Kraków, Poland. MIRCIM is an annual course organized by the McMaster University Department of Medicine, the birthplace of evidence-based medicine (EBM) and problem-based learning (PBL), in collaboration with Jagiellonian University Medical College and the Polish Society of Internal Medicine. 

In 2017, for the first time, the course will be accompanied by satellite events on May 11 (Thursday): a conference on evidence-based medicine supervised by Professor Gordon Guyatt (click here to see the invitation) and a series of practical workshops for physicians. The program of the conference and workshops can be viewed here. All events will again take place in the ICE Kraków Congress Centre, located conveniently in the vicinity of Kraków’s famous tourist attractions and well-communicated with the airport, which offers excellent connections with many European cities.

The 20-minute lectures will be delivered by outstanding experts, from authors of clinical practice guidelines to researchers behind the breakthrough trials that shape the modern standards in medicine. The course aims to deliver up-to-date and reliable knowledge that is useful to general internists, subspecialists, hospitalists, family physicians, residents, and fellows in training specializing in internal medicine. The course has been granted 12 European CME credits (ECMEC) by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME). These CME points are also valid in North America. The full program can be viewed here.

In 2016, MIRCIM attracted over 500 participants from nearly 30 countries, from Canada to Korea and New Zealand. The overall rating of the course averaged 4.7 out of 5 points, with the majority of the surveyed highly praising the topic selection, quality of the lectures, and overall organization of the course.

Stay current in your field with the most practical, up-to-date, evidence-based knowledge useful in everyday practice.
