Conferences and Forums MEDICA
MEDICA’s great international flair is reflected by many highlights in English in both the programme of supporting conferences and the forums.


This year the multi-disciplinary programme of the MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE comprising continuous education and courses has an even more international focus with its line-up of English language events. Focal themes are surgery, imaging, internal medicine, hygiene and diagnostics – cutting a sharp profile as regards content and closely dovetailing with the medical device technology innovations on display at the trade fair.

Other events rounding off the programme of side events include the International Conference on Disaster and Military Medicine as well as high-calibre events for international sports medicine experts, the MEDICA MEDICINE + SPORTS CONFERENCE and the MEDICA PHYSIO CONFERENCE.


Integrated into the trade fair, the various MEDICA Forums provide an exciting trend overview.

The digitisation of patients, which will be an essential characteristic of treatments in future, is addressed by medical device technology suppliers and MEDICA also plays its role as a trendsetter with such forums as the MEDICA CONNECTED HEALTHCARE FORUM. The 100% English-language event addresses how health care actors can network simply and safely with each other with the help of corresponding technological solutions.

The MEDICA HEALTH IT FORUM also addresses trend themes in health IT. Here the focus is primarily on the field of telemedicine.
