Family Medicine plays an integral part in many healthcare systems around the world. Family Medicine is by far the backbone of the integrated medical care, including diagnosis, prevention, and treatment.At IFM, we aim to promote the important role of family physicians whom we consider the frontline of the healthcare system. We also work on promoting the ethics and standards of the primary healthcare system through continuous education and knowledge transfer.

IFM contributes directly to the promotion of healthcare policies, healthy lifestyle patterns, and primary care, which form the basis for comprehensive medical practice.

Every edition, we bring influential speakers and thought-leaders who will get us up to speed on how to leverage new technologies and discoveries. Those international caliber keynote speakers will share their knowledge and expertise during the continuing education courses and networking events, to enlighten our attendees about the latest updates in the field, all while gaining valuable but affordable Continuing Medical Education (CME) points.
