Dear Madam/Sir

On behalf of the Ordem dos Médicos (the Portuguese Medical Order), we invite you to join us for the CEOM (European Council of Medical Orders) meeting that, this year, will take place in Coimbra, Portugal, on June 4th.

The CEOM brings together the Medical Councils and the independent medical regulatory authorities of European Union Member States and the European Free Trade Association responsible for either, ethics and professional conduct, registration or licensing procedures, disciplinary matters regarding physicians, recognition of qualifications and levels of specialty, authorization to practice and setting of professional standards.

With this annual event, CEOM intends to promote the practice of high quality medicine respectful of patients’ needs, as well as to develop high quality standards and common positions related to the medical practice.

Thus, this meeting will be an interchange event where all the participants will be able to exchange knowledge and experience aiming to reach and promote the highest standards of medical care among the European Medical professionals.

Furthermore, you will also have the chance to meet the participants from the Foro Iberoamericano de Entidades Médicas – FIEM 2016, also held in Coimbra and that will bring together professionals from all over the Latin America and the Iberian Peninsula.

Besides the conference activities, and as the local organizing committee, will also do our best to make you feel welcome and enjoy the city of Coimbra.

We sincerely hope that you will all find your way to Coimbra next June, where you will be able to meet and interact with your peers.

Yours Sincerely,

Prof. Dr. José Manuel Silva
Bastonário da Ordem dos Médicos de Portugal
