AMLI - Athens Medical Leadership and Innovation Conference


Dear colleagues,

Athens Medical Group (AMG) was founded in 1984 by Dr. G Apostolopoulos, with a vision to become a globally leading healthcare institution and transform Greece into a world class medical destination, equal to the ones in Western Europe and the USA. Today, AMG is one of the best European Medical Groups, whose hospitals operate under the strictest international quality criteria. Its specialized and experienced healthcare professionals have been trained in elite University hospitals, worldwide, while state-of-the-art technology supports the provision of multidisciplinary, patient centered services. Innovative methods and techniques are constantly adopted, while some of them are firstly presented on a worldwide level. Finally, AMG is offering world class facilities to doctors of the Greek diaspora, thus becoming a key contributor to the reversal of the “Brain Drain” effect.

Serving its founder’s vision, Athens Medical Group is organizing the 2nd Athens Medical Leadership and Innovation Conference (AMLI 2018), 23-25 November 2018, at the Megaron Athens International Conference Center. The AMLI 2018 conference is expected to serve as a platform where top scientists from Athens Medical Group and their global counterparts will discuss latest trends in their respective fields of expertise. At the same time the conference will address key global trends driving patient mobility, into what is considered today a fully globalized market for Healthcare services. Finally, the important role of patient advocacy will be emphasized.

On behalf of the Organizing Committee, we would like to invite you to participate tο this important scientific event.

Important news about the future of health came out of the 2nd Athens Medical Leadership and Innovation Conference 2018, organised by Athens Medical Group. From 23 to 25 November more than 2.500 doctors, medical students, patient association representatives, insurance company representatives, from Greece, Russia, the Balkans, N. Africa, the Middle East, Cyprus and the former Soviet Republics, as well as many people interested in keeping abreast of modern trends in health, had the opportunity to listen to more than 250 speeches. A 75 member scientific committee had the responsibility for this multidisciplinary conference (General Clinic, Paediatrics, Nursing, Medical Tourism) in which more than 300 leading scientists from the Group participated, alongside their counterparts from Greece and abroad.

At the same time and in the context of a conference that has become an institution, more issues related to Medical Tourism and the position of Greece in an increasingly, globalised health service market were presented. In addition to these key scientific and strategic matters concerning the overall future of Greece, this international conference has dealt with Brain Gain in the health sector, as well as the Group’s very important legacy to the specific sector, as the path has now been paved for leading doctors, Greek scientists to return to Greece, who amongst other things apply new, innovative interventional techniques. Moreover, another important conference session was that on patient advocacy, which over recent years has become a matter of great importance and necessity.
