• I can't believe my luck! I was truly fortunate to have attended this seminar. The presenters readily shared inside information, that was so valuable. It very realistically defined where each one of us stood on the road to residency, and highlighted how much effort each one of us needed in order to get where we wanted. The most amazing thing was, that each person's concerns were individually addressed in the Q & A session. Now I have a very clear idea of what my next step has to be. And I am more determined than ever to get there! I cannot thank the presenters and the administration enough.

  • IMI 9th international conference held in Orlando from July 22-24 was a truly memorable event for us. This conference was unique as it encompassed topics that were interesting to medical as well as non-medical groups.

    Topics such as Fetal origins of adult cardiovascular disease, depressive disorders, diabetes, back pain, knee crisis, vascular interventions, urinary incontinence, radiology, Quality improvement in health care, medical ethics, kidney disease, biopsychosocial health models were presented by experts in the field and they presented case studies that were relevant to current medical practices.

    Conference also addressed the young upcoming youth leaders with an entire track of event dedicated to them. Mentoring was provided by each professional and students got a chance to develop one to one relationship with their mentors. In summary, IMI's yearly conference is not to be missed!

  • It was an excellent conference well planned, presented, and well attended.  If individually traveling we may have never enjoyed the kind of reception the participants received throughout their stay in Iran.

  • The IMI 8th International Conference is over, but the memories are going to live forever. It has been a wonderful experience. This IMI conference was one of the most hectic and widely traveled conferences I had ever attended. The Iranian hosts were excellent and lived up to their world known hospitality.  When you organize such a gigantic event little hiccups are bound to happen. I thank all the organizers and congratulate them for the success of the conference. Dr. Wajih Rizvi, Dr. Arshad Quyyumi, Dr. Mohsin Hyderi and the Iranian hosts need special mention, and of course you Sakina Rizvi have done a marvelous job with competence and composure.
