Dear Colleagues & Friends,

On behalf of the executive committee it gives me a great pleasure to invite you and welcome you to attend “The 12th International Jordanian Conference of Internal Medicine” in collaboration with The Royal College of Physicians / Edinburgh. The conference will take place at Le Meridien Hotel in Amman, Jordan during the period between April 21-24, 2014 under the Patronage of Her Royal Highness Princess Basma Bint Talal.

The Conference will feature plenary lectures to be delivered by renowned local, regional and international speakers in addition to free papers, posters, and workshops. Invaluable knowledge and art will be delivered in this conference by such qualified doctors and medical staff.

A scientific exhibition of pharmaceuticals, medical equipments and other products is also planned to allow for discussion and exchange of information between relevant delegates and leading industrial companies.

Numerous social events are programmed to accompany and follow the scientific activities that will provide opportunities to renew old contacts and establish new ones. They also aim at acquainting the participants with Amman and other famous historic and touristic sites in Jordan, such as Petra the second of the seven world wonders, Jerash, Desert Palaces, and the Dead Sea.

The social program will be extraordinary, reflecting the Jordanian sense of hospitality and generosity combined with fun, for the participants and their spouses.

We hope, therefore, that you will find this conference attractive from both the scientific professional as well as the social aspects.

We cordially express our gratitude to all those planning to attend and to the participating organizations, agencies and companies for their support.
