Welcome Letter

We are most pleased to inform you that the 7th edition of the World Congress on Controversies, Debates & Consensus in Bone, Muscle & Joint Diseases (BMJD) will be held in Taipei, Taiwan from October 17 – 19, 2019, continuing its past successes in Thailand, Australia, Europe and North America.

BMJD has further enhanced the format of its program for 2019 with new approaches to yet more productive interactions and discussions between experts and participants, offering the best possible translational learning experience while sharing the most recent advances in the treatment and investigation of a number of musculoskeletal diseases.

The 2019 program will focus on the most challenging arthritic conditions seen in daily practice both in Asia and in the rest of the world. The aims will be to help physicians by improving the investigation and management of patients suffering from these diseases. Expert debates on the many advancements in the clinical and basic science fields of bone, muscle and joint diseases will focus on providing practical management solutions to challenging and clinically relevant issues encountered in daily practice.

In preparation for this Congress and to meet participant expectations, we are fortunate to be supported by a team of Asian and international renowned experts actively contributing to the scientific program.

We very much look forward to seeing you in Taipei and joining us for a unique and in-depth learning experience on the treatment of arthritic diseases.
