A primary care medical conference in Jeddah, as advertised below:
The Department of Family Medicine, King Faisal Specialist Hospital & Research Centre, Jeddah, Saudi Arabia (www.kfshrcj.org) is holding its 2nd Family Medicine Symposium on Jan 27 – 28, 2009, at the Inter-Continental Hotel Jeddah. This symposium is being held in collaboration with the Saudi Society for Family & Community Medicine – Jeddah (www.ssfcm.org/ssfcm_en/index.php) and the Joint Program for Family Medicine, Jeddah.
Last year at our first symposium, we had more than five hundred thirty registered participants, besides a large number of prominent national and international speakers.
This year’s symposium is primarily directed towards the family physicians and general practitioners. However, the symposium is open to residents, nurses, researchers and other allied health professionals. We plan to cover a wide variety of medical topics, including medical updates that would be of interest to our target audience.
We invite you to attend this symposium and benefit from knowledge sharing. International participants will have an excellent opportunity to closely observe the fascinating local culture and rich heritage in Saudi Arabia.
The hospital will arrange a business visa to enter Saudi Arabia but sufficient time should be given for this process which is relatively straight forward.
