5-13 OCTOBER 2023

Dear healthcare professionals, legal experts, lawyers, and academics who are interested in medical law,

Medical law is a developing, dynamic branch of science, it is of the essence to find solutions to the legal problems which arise with the development in medicine at the same rate. For this reason, scientists and practitioners should elucidate and discuss the current issues at the congress, symposium and panels in order to contribute to the resolution of legal disputes and to the regulations of the legislatures.

With these aims, the International Medical Law Congress is being held every two years. Our first congress was held on September 02-05, 2015 in Bodrum, named as ‘National Medical Law Congress with International Participation (Case Discussion)’ and communiqués were published. The second congress was held on September 20-24, 2017 in Antalya, named as ‘II. International Medical Law Congress’ and subsequently the congress book was published. Our third congress was held on October 09-12, 2019 in Antalya. In our congress, we invited physicians, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, academic members and lecturers, other healthcare professionals and teaching assistants and students in the relevant field to present papers and to participate in our congress. We had participants from 17 countries and the Congress was taken place in 5 halls simultaneously. The presentations of the Congress were also published in two volumes in 2020.

The International Medical Law Congress was organized online for the first time due to the pandemic on 8-9-10 January 2021 and ıt was hosted by the Dokuz Eylul University, the Dean of the Faculty of Law. In addition to Turkish participants, 25 foreign participants from 19 countries including Germany, Albania, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Iran, Spain, Italy, Japan, Canada, Kazakhstan, Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus, Macedonia, Malaysia, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Serbia and Ukraine attended to the Congress and gave presentations on current and/or new issues regarding medical law. In the congress, physicians, judges, prosecutors, lawyers, academics, other healthcare professionals, assistants and students presented papers their papers in German, English, Arabic and Turkish.  A total of 58 sessions were held at the congress, with a total of 139 papers, 9 of which were in German and 15 in English, in 3 halls simultaneously. In this way, our congress has been the most comprehensive medical law congress of all time held in our country. The presentations of this congress were also published in three volumes in 2021.

The 5th  International Medical Law Congress was held on 27-28 August 2021 at the Dokuz Eylul University Seferihisar/Urkmez facilities as a hybrid Congress which was hosted by the Dokuz Eylul University, the Dean of the Faculty of Law. 59 speakers, 30 of them foreign and 29 of them Turkish, who are experts in the field of medical law, attended this international congress. The presentations were also published in 2021.

With the power of the successes that we achieved in the congresses, we kept working together with the same congress managers, the organizing committee, the scientific advisory board, the secretariat, and the organization company, and organized this event.

We are proud of organizing these Congresses which have always been a pioneer among law congresses in Turkey and is a first in the field of medical law. The 6th International Medical Law Congress will also be hosted by the Dokuz Eylul University, the Dean of the Faculty of Law with the support of the Unity of Physician Union on the cruise ship MSC Splendida on 5-13 October 2023 from the route of Istanbul-Venice-Istanbul.

We have kept the main topics and titles that can be presented at the congress very broad. In addition, participation in the congress is not limited to these issues, these are only suggestions. Therefore, with all respect to those who set their hearts on and are interested in medical and health law, we hope to see you in our Congress.

We would like to thank all the participants and wish them success in the hope that the congress will be productive and make great contributions to the medical law of our country.
