Why attend?

The Edinburgh International Course in Medicine of the Older Adult takes place from Monday 20 - Friday 24 May 2019. Run annually by the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh, it attracts approx. 100 senior-level geriatricians from around the world, providing updates on policy and practice of elderly medicine in the UK by experts in their field, as well as a great networking opportunity. This year the programme focusses again on the 'geriatric giants', with day topics on mobility, cognition, continence, common comorbidities, and frailty. Delegates can attend the whole week or individual days. There is also an attractive social programme and two free afternoons to explore our beautiful city.
