Medis Awards Impressions

I firmly believe that it is an excellent idea to award medical doctors and pharmacists who, in addition to being very busy performing their daily clinical duties, still find the time, energy and willpower to carry out research work, mainly during their weekends and nights.

Prof. Matija Tomšič, MD, PhD

In almost 30 years of dedicated work in the fields of medicine and pharmacy, we discovered that there were many exceptional clinical research achievements accomplished by medical practitioners and pharmacists in our region that had gone unnoticed by both the public as well as the broader scientific community. Through the International Medis Awards for Medical Research we ensure that these outstanding achievements no longer go unnoticed.
