The Finnish Society of Internal Medicine was founded in 1931 with the aim of uniting Finnish internal medicine physicians and promoting the scientific and practical development of internal medicine in Finland. In order to achieve its purpose, the Society publishes publications, organises meetings, presentations and consultations, issues statements and makes proposals to the authorities and carries out other similar activities to further the Society's purpose.

The Society organizes several educational meetings each year:

  • Annual meeting in Helsinki at the beginning of February
  • Spring meeting in Lapland in March or April - organized every other year
  • Taitokeskus training in Tampere in the spring - organized in alternating years with the Lapland spring meeting
  • Internal medicine days is a two-day event in November in Helsinki
