MEDIS Foundation, Campina, Romania

The foundation was created in 1999 under the shape of a non-governmental organisation, primarily oriented towards the Continuous Medical Education activity and for this reason the Medis Foundation accredited as CME provider, by the Romanian National College of Physicians.

Developing very fast on the congress organisation area, the foundation has also organised more than 70 congresses, medical symposia, workshops and hands-on trainings, not only at the national level but also at the international one. And in this sense, the most representative of all the medical events organised by the Medis Foundation so far, has been the 21st International Conference of “Society for Medical Innovation and Technology”, held on 7th -9th October 2009, in Sinaia, and which gathered numerous important figures of the medical world, from no less than 21 countries all around the globe. Medis organized workshops in Tel Aviv, Baden Baden, Barcelona.

The Medis Foundation unfolds part of its activity, in a strong collaboration with the clinical platform of “Medis Camp” Diagnosis and Treatment Centre, Campina, and also in an important alliance with Campina Municipal Hospital.

Several results of the medical studies performed by our foundation, have been sustained in sessions within important international congresses such as EuroAmerican Summit for Minimally Invasive Surgery, editions of 2005, 2007, 2009; EUROSON Congress, EAES Congresses and SMIT Conferences all along the past few years.

For the last years, Medis Foundation has participated in EU projects related to focused ultrasound therapies and surgical training, assuming mainly the Dissemination/Exploitation work packages:

  • FUSIMO: FP7-ICT-2009-6-270186
  • KTS: 543202-LLP-1-2013-1-ES-KA3-KA3MP
  • SurgTTT: 2014-1-DE02-KA202-001474

Medis Foundation main role in this project will be to coordinate the dissemination and validation activities and will actively contribute to the rest of work packages. It will provide direct access to surgeons and validation trials in Romania.
