In November 2008 the first European Congress for Integrative Medicine in conjunction with the first German Congress for Integrative Medicine took place under the motto “The Future of Comprehensive Patient Care” in Berlin.

The annual ECIM congress offers an innovative platform for medical practitioners and healthcare professionals as well as scientists, sponsors, and health politicians. The aim is to actively influence the development of the best possible health care which combines safe and effective conventional Western medicine with complementary medicine methods of treatment such as naturopathy, osteopathy, and acupuncture. The topics of the congress are characterised by the interdisciplinary cooperation which reach beyond the traditional approaches of medicine.
