Dear MFPRM Family,

As you know, we will have both 12th Congress of MFPRM and 13th Course of Euro-Mediterranean PRM Summer School in the same month.
The Congress will be held in Malta on between November 9 and 12, 2017. As we all know, we should follow the developments in technology and innovations about medicine for giving better rehabilitation facilities. In coming MFPRM Congress, the professionals working in the field of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation will share us with their experiences, and enrich our basic knowledge with uptodate information about general health and rehabilitative approaches. As the President of Mediterranean Forum of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine, I wish you a very successful Congress. Please visit the Congress website: http://www.prmcongress2017malta.org/

The EMRSS Course will also be done in Siracusa on between November 27 and 30, 2017. The title of the course is on "Manual Medicine in the treatment of pain of vertebral origin". The Course program and application form are here. The Course President, Prof Franco Cirillo and his team are always doing a great job. We appreciate their efforts.
We would like to announce this course to all Mediterranean Countries:
If the young PMR doctors want to attend this course, they will pay their own expenses (registration fee (€ 80.00) and stay in a hotel (€ 20,00 per person, per day in a double room), and air ticket).
The application form can be downloaded from the website: http://www.emrss.it/ENG/
After fulfilling it, you can send it to Eliana Cirillo via e-mail: elianacirillo@virgilio.it

See you in Malta and Siracusa,
Best regards,

Prof Gulseren Akyuz
President of MFPRM

The Message from Past President

Dear Colleagues,

I am very honoured and pleased to welcome all colleagues, in particular all Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (PRM) colleagues from the Mediterranean basin.

In 1996 Prof. Haim Ring organised the first PRM Mediterranean Congress, in Herzliya, under the slogan "Rehabilitation without frontiers"aiming to promote PRM worldwide and the quality of life of the disabled, namely in the Mediterranean areaSince then, colleagues from all over the world participated in this unique project that allows an exchange of knowledge and develops friendship among all, regardless the culture, race or religion.

The Mediterranean Congresses is a success case study, with colleagues coming from all the continents and an increase both in participation and in the scientific standard.

In the first congress we aimed to create a Mediterranean PRM Society, and in Athens, during the 3rd Congress, in 2000, we founded the Mediterranean Forum of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine – MFPRM - with the mission (vide statues):

  • To be the scientific Mediterranean body for physicians around or with close vicinity with the Mediterranean Sea, in the fields of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine.
  • To facilitate Mediterranean exchange regarding different aspects of Rehabilitation research...
  • To organise a biennial Mediterranean congress of PRM...
  • To influence national governments (...) to support initiatives and co-operation in the field of teaching development of services and research in PRM...

I have a dream.

The MFPRM is a unique and ever growing PRM Society where more than 500 colleagues, from 25 countries, acting in a volunteer basis to achieve our scientific, cultural and humanitarian mission: to develop and harmonize PRM in the Mediterranean Countries and to contribute for a better and peaceful Mediterranean region “without frontiers”. 
We have an “Action Plan” and we are deeply and emotionally involved in the MFPRM:

  • Our Mediterranean PRM Congress is held biennially, the 10th in Sorrento - Italy, 2012, and the 11th in Alexandria - Egypt, 2013.
  • The “European Journal of PRM is our official journal.
  •  The Euro-Mediterranean PRM School (EMPRMS), every year in Syracuse (Italy) under the leadership of Dr. Franco Cirillo and the sponsorship of the Italian Society PRM (SIMFER) is a free course for about 40 PRM trainees or young specialists.
  • Our Turkish colleagues create this website -www.mfprm.org. We are committed to update and transforming it in an open space for communication, cooperation and scientific rehearsal among colleagues of all the regions of the world, in particular from the Mediterranean area.
