Events during MEDICA



Thursday, 17 November 2016

The scientific program of Thursday, the MEDICA EDUCATION CONFERENCE's final day looks at Diagnostics in Internal Medicine, Laboratory Medicine, Toxicology and Hygiene. Goal oriented determination of laboratory parameters, correct interpretation and connection to clinical symptoms determine the course of many diseases to a significant extent. In addition, gram-negative and gram-positive pathogens, for example, are an omnipresent interdisciplinary topic of discussion.

The conference takes place in the CCD South.
