The publishing house – a publisher of the evidence-based-medicine magazines “Taking Care of Woman” and “Practicum on Neonatology and Fetal Medicine” invites to the 4th annual EASTERN EUROPEAN PROFESSIONAL MEETINGS: maternal fetal medicine.
Fetal medicine is still a quite young area of obstetrics all around the world, but the pace of its development is amazing. This is the case when we have to run in order to stay on the ground and to be at the level of modern trends. If we aspire (and we do aspire!) to progress – we must run as fast as possible.
That is why we have created a program that was not only relevant but also non-trivial and very practical. Each speaker is the Name in his field. Each sphere is another puzzle that should be solved to move on. In addition to the core program, we have prepared intensive pre-courses on the most important topics of prenatology.
The special application Profi-Lab (for Android) or the Extempore (for App) where the program, information about speakers and reports were placed will make it easier to orientate in the huge universe of our conference.
This spring we will improve diagnostics, optimize prevention, adapt the treatment, in order to preserve life, improve the health and quality of life of pregnant women and fetuses, mothers and newborns.
We accept only the highest level of education – the continuing non-stop education of the doctors. From global moments to details – for us there are no exceptions to the search for flawlessness!
