Medicine: taking new paths

Dear Sir or Madam,

Health policy is not only highly complex, but matters of this kind are often hotly debated in public. The current corona pandemic is also providing plenty of food for discussion. After all, laws, ordinances and regulations must ensure that health care is safe and patient well-being is guaranteed - a vital task. Every player in the healthcare system should therefore keep abreast of the health policy challenges. At virtual.MEDICA 2020, this is possible even in times of crisis. Learn more in our Trend Topic "Medicine: taking new paths"!

Enjoy reading,

Your virtual.MEDICA team
