About Simi

The Italian Association of Internal Medicine (Società Italiana di Medicina Interna, SIMI) was established in 1887, making it the oldest existing Italian medical society. The objectives of the Association, as set out in its charter, are to provide opportunities for continuing medical education, to organize scientific, cultural, practical and social events pertinent to internal medicine, to offer fellowships for talented young researchers, and to promote and fund scientific research.

With the development of annual programs coherent with its charter, SIMI achieves its objectives through the:

a) Organization of conferences, seminars, research studies, round table discussions and courses for all levels of training
b) Publication of periodicals and occasional reports for its membership (and not only)
c) Support and promotion of scientific activities organized in collaboration with national and regional agencies, such as the Ministry of Health, the Ministry of Instruction, University and Research, the Italian Regions, local healthcare systems and other national and European associations and governmental institutions whose scopes and aims are similar or complementary to those of SIMI.
