During the last three years, DiMiMED, the International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine, has grown into an internationally recognized conference focussing on current issues in military medicine and disaster medicine. The disasters taking place all over the world have shown that it is absolutely essential for civilian medical services and the military medical services to join forces to provide optimum on-site medical care. In addition to civilian medical services, the medical services of the armed forces are increasingly used to deal with disasters. DiMiMED provides a platform for exchanging experiences, holding discussions and for promoting global cooperation.
The DiMiMED conference is organized by the Beta Group / Beta Verlag & Marketinggesellschaft mbH, under the auspices of the Medical Corps International Forum (MCIF) and powered by MEDICA / Messe Düsseldorf GmbH.
Alongside other issues, the conference will focus on issues in disaster medicine, traumatology, pre-hospital care, medical evacuation and transport. Internationally acclaimed experts will speak about their experiences and encourage exchanges of ideas.
It would be our pleasure to welcome you in Duesseldorf attending our conference!
About 200 high-ranking military medical and public health professionals and 50 industrial partners.
The 1st and 2nd DiMiMED conferences have been a great success - the speakers gave an overview about the broad field of Disaster and Military Medicine, our partner companies introduced their possibilities for cooperation with the military medical corps. The participants - nearly 200 - came from more than 20 countries, and all of them were really enthusiastic.
The 3rd DimiMED took place on 17 and 18 November 2015, during MEDICA Trade Fair 2015 in Düsseldorf, Germany. We collected statements from these organizers and lecturers Rear Admiral uh MC (ret) Christoph Büttner, Brigadier General (ret) Rob van der Meer, Prof. Leo Latasch, Jörn Brauer and Colonel Pharmacist Dr. Ullrich Kindling.
