The 7th edition of the NUHS-Harvard BIDMC Internal Medicine Conference 2024 will be held on 31 May - 1 June 2024. Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Centre (BIDMC) is a major teaching affiliate of the Harvard Medical School. This conference started as a partnership between NUHS and Harvard-BIDMC as an internal medicine conference targeted at residents to help them keep abreast with updates in medical fields. From the 5th edition onwards, we expanded the conference to benefit not just internal medicine residents, but all specialists (junior and senior) across medically-related specialties and our colleagues in primary care. 

With this year's theme of "Health of All, Everyone, Everywhere", w
e hope the event will not only provide a learning platform for you but also opportunities to network with local and international experts and peers. The sessions will undoubtedly provide invaluable insights into the current trends and issues in Internal Medicine and beyond.

We hope that this conference will leave you with renewed passion for the practice of Medicine and give a boost in your journey towards providing better care for patients.

Registration is now open.
