PRIMO MEDICO has set itself the goal of merging a variety of medical specialists in Germany, Austria and Switzerland together in an interdisciplinary network. Leading doctors and hospitals appear together to give a face to the upstanding medicine in German-speaking countries.
A medical advisory board has been established to achieve this goal and to ensure the quality of the network in the long term. The medical advisory board advises the executive board of PRIMO MEDICO GmbH in the further development of the network, especially in the establishment of department-specific guidelines for the admission of new members (e.g. new qualifications, colleague acceptance, etc.), and also in the selection of community service projects, which PRIMO MEDICO GmbH promotes. The medical advisory boards also write scientific articles that are addressed to the patient and are generally comprehensible.
The PRIMO MEDICO team is proud to have gained the following specialists as medical advisory boards and we would like to thank you for that!
