SMSC Bern March 2023 - Precision Medicine 
Upcoming SMSC

Where: Bern
What: Precision Medicine
When: 24.03.2023-26.03.2023
Registration date: 13.02.2023
The swiss medical student’s convention 2023 in Bern will be all about precision medicine. Precision medicine is a new paradigm of medical care. It assumes that every person is unique. In contrast to classical medicine, it incorporates individual patient characteristics into treatment. Thus, therapies depend not only on disease patterns but also on genetic predisposition, environmental factors and lifestyle.

The SMSC’s presentations will introduce the concepts of precision medicine and the role of data-based technologies in the development of individualized therapeutic approaches. Several short symposium presentations will provide an overview of the application and challenges of  precision medicine in the clinical practice of various specialities. Finally, the convention will reach its climax in an exciting panel discussion with representatives from the clinical, research, business and policy communities. The panel will discuss the ethnic and economic implications of  precision medicine, thereby encouraging the participants to critically engage with the topic.  In addition to the medical content of the weekend, a great social program and an extraordinary party are waiting for you.

To stay up to date, follow the Instagram account of swimsa and check out the swimsa homepage.

Be as excited as we are and mark the date in your calendars!
See you in Bern, your SMSC OC
