    accompanying events.

    original scientific works. Part of the program will take the form of round tables, discussion forums,
    workshops, sections for nurses, and poster presentations.
    Participation in the congress counts towards CMC credits within its continuing education program. We
    believe that you will find the congress interesting and we will be pleased to have it serve as a pleasant
    environment for obtaining up-to-date information and allowing for continued education in occupational
    medicine and related fields. We look forward to seeing you in Mariánské Lázně.
