ESSM family is celebrating our 25 years anniversary and holds the slogan “a growth from basic science to clinical practice” with a holistic, multidisciplinary approach and delivers high standard information from basic and clinical science to clinical practice. ESSM also celebrates its annual congress with up to date science on the latest and most fascinating findings and achievements in Sexual Medicine. The leading experts in Sexual Medicine will share with you how recent research findings may translate into clinical applications and how clinical findings will finally support and enrich your daily medical practice for the benefit of the million sufferers from any kind of sexual problems.
With the long-standing tradition of ESSM our priority of the annual congress is the educational program aiming at training of young colleagues and to intensify the knowledge of advanced colleagues in special topics of interest. In that sense, ESSM builds bridges between the generations. This is what ESSM extremely stands for: the mixture of pioneers and leaders as well as new upstarts in the ﬁeld of Sexual Medicine is the secret recipe of the permanent success story of the ESSM congresses. The content of the congress will cover topics regarding all sexes and all sexual orientations. State-of-the-art educational opportunities and the newest innovative research will be highlighted.
