Active discussion and lively debate at 12th conference of Clinic of Internal Medicine

13. October 2014

The 12th conference of the Clinic of Internal Medicine of East-Tallinn Central Hospital, which is very popular among doctors, was held on 3rd of October. The autumn conference offered presentations by respected specialists from the clinic, exciting debates and the chance to listen to roundtable discussions.

Leading the conference is Dr Ene Mäots, who says the event has changed a lot compared to when it first started in 2003. “The number of items on the programme has increased every year, and the level of education of the participants makes the organisers and speakers try harder all the time,” said Dr Mäeots. “The programme and presentations need to be chosen more carefully and we have to be better prepared. This year, the focus is on the problems and issues we’ve encountered ourselves and noticed when processing patients referred to East-Tallinn Central Hospital. We’ll also again be offering listeners interesting presentations and innovative approaches to a range of subjects.”

East-Tallinn Central Hospital was one of the first hospitals to start organising a large-scale conference of this nature, and today the event is unique because of its roundtable discussions. A debate among specialists took place for the first time this year, with cardiologists and endocrinologists weighing up the pros and cons of being overweight.

We are pleased that the number of supporters and participants is growing every year – reaching around 400 participants this year. The popularity of the conference among doctors makes it an event that both participants and partners look forward to, as it gives them a great opportunity to share their thoughts and talk about their experiences.
