"Complexity in general practice - challenges and opportunities": The German College of General Practitioners and Family Physicians (DEGAM) will be addressing this topical and important subject at its annual congress to take place at the Munich University of Applied Sciences in September. On a scientific basis and over a period of three days, the Society will be discussing the challenges and opportunities presented by the trend towards greater complexity. In the spirit of a "three-country congress", the Austrian Society of General Practice and Family Medicine (ÖGAM) and the South Tyrolean Society of General Practice (SüGAM) will be co-organizing the event, while the Catholic University of Applied Sciences in Munich and the Bavarian AOK health insurance fund will be cooperation partners. Whoever has saved the date of the annual congress should register quickly, as registrations received by July 15 will enjoy an EARLY BOOKING DISCOUNT: Members will pay €145 rather than €180 and non-members €235 rather than €275. Exceptions to this rule are students (€45), health care assistants (€70) and doctors undergoing specialist training (€100), who already pay reduced rates.
