McMaster International Review Course in Internal Medicine (MIRCIM) is an international review course in internal medicine, held annually since 2015 in the ICE Conference Center in Kraków, Poland.
MIRCIM has been conceived and developed by the McMaster University Department of Medicine, the birthplace of evidence-based medicine (EBM) and problem-based learning (PBL), and the Polish Institute for Evidence Based Medicine. It is organized in collaboration with the European Federation of Internal Medicine, the International Society of Internal Medicine, the Jagiellonian University Medical College, under the umbrella of the American College of Physicians, and in partnership with more than 40 national societies of internal medicine from around the world.
Our aim is to deliver up-to-date and reliable knowledge that is useful to general internists, subspecialists, hospitalists, family physicians, residents and fellows in training specializing in internal medicine — and we are proud to say that we achieve this goal every year.
“We are all alike, on the inside”
Mark Twain's words are particularly relevant in the contexts of internal medicine and MIRCIM itself, with participants coming from around the world.
It is not hard to see why MIRCIM keeps attracting more and more people every year.

About Clinical Cases in Internal Medicine: Learning Through Practice
The conference Clinical Cases in Internal Medicine: Learning Through Practice is the final stage of the Best Case Report Contest – a worldwide contest for the best case report in internal medicine. National societies of internal medicine from around the world (46 partner societies in 2021) delegate and endorse up to 10 case reports by young internists from their country describing original observations concerning diagnosis, treatment, or both.
The aim of the conference is to promote the concept and methods of evidence-based medicine and problem-based learning.
