Welcome to the 5th BMJD Congress in Gold Coast, Australia

Over the years, the field of bone, muscle and joint diseases have undergone enormous expansion in clinical and basic data, as well as that of field-related technology. With the problem of bone, muscle and joint diseases reaching epidemiological dimensions, treatment possibilities are expanding.

This development has created a need for debates and discussions on the numerous controversial issues to attain clinical conclusions.  

The 5th edition of the BMJD Congress aims to continue facilitating effective debates on unresolved clinical and therapeutic dilemmas, supported by evidence-based medicine and expert opinions by a distinguished selection of faculty members. The program will provide an effective forum for discussing and debating such unresolved controversies by allowing ample time for speaker-audience discussions. Emphasis will be placed on issues related to Rheumatoid Arthritis/Inflammatory Arthritis and Osteoarthritis/Pain.

Join us at BMJD and become part of our professional network of clinicians, researchers and educators from around the world, exchanging ideas, insights and information, in our quest to improve patients’ lives.
