The Workshop is a joint Romanian – British meeting created to promote protocols in respiratory diseases, attracting over 100 international participants across the spectrum of pneumology yearly since 2008. The event showcases the best science and clinical practice in pneumology and aims to deliver to all audiences, whether you are an experienced consultant, a scientist or a student, and whether you are well advanced in your career or just starting out.

After the cancellations of 2020 due to the Covid pandemic, the 2021 edition is now planned to take place during 5 – 6 November (Friday – Saturday) in a hybrid format, streaming from the village of Vama, Bucovina, Romania. The meeting is endorsed by the Pneumology Society of Romania (Societatea Romana de Pneumologie), offers educational credits, and this year will seek for the first-time endorsement from the European Association of Bronchoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology (EABIP).

During the meeting pharma companies can benefit from various packages of promotional activities, including a specific dedicated time and space for the launch of new products and equipment.

Draft Program

Medicine 2022: new models of care post pandemic

  • Diagnostic bronchoscopy.
  • Point of care ultrasound.
  • Remote patient monitoring area & hub and spoke health models.

  • Product reviews & Sponsored presentations

Target audience: consultants, junior consultants, residents (medici primari, specialiști, rezidenți).

Places are strictly limited to 60 onsite participants; streaming will be done for a larger audience based on pre-registration, and we estimate a total of 500+ global online participants in line with our recent webinars experience.

The guest speakers drafted for 2021 are from Great Britain, Italy, Germany and Romania, and possible other countries. Our speakers are chosen for their ability to teach complex concepts in an easy-to-understand manner, with the support of the European Association for Bronchoscopy and Interventional Pulmonology (EABIP).

All presentations and hands on sessions are short, interactive, in a TED-style format. Discussions, debates, questions are encouraged. The program will have many practical workshops and will benefit from numerous state-of-the-art equipment and simulators.

At the end of the conference, each participant will go home with new practical knowledge, immediately applicable in clinical practice, and with new collaborative relationships for the future. 

Hope it will be possible to participate. Thank you for your interest and we are looking forward seeing you in Vama!

Yours sincerely,
