ICLAM is back to Asia!

The ICLAM (International Committee for Insurance Medicine) Congresses have become the international benchmark for congress aimed at scientific training, interactive discussion and networking on topics related to risk underwriting, claims assessment & medical trends and its significant to Life/Health/Disability insurance.

ICLAM has a very rich history over 100 years.

ICLAM 2019 will be only the second time that ICLAM will be coming to Asia (after a long gap of 32 years).

KEY SESSION FORMATS: https://www.iclammumbai2019.org/scientific-programme

ICLAM 2019 will bring many diverse formats of sharing knowledge via the Scientific Program

A. Preconference Workshops: 2 Masterclass workshops will be held with limited number of registrations to enable focused discussions and case studies.

Option 1: “Genetics and Genomics”: We will cover the advances & potential impact of Genetics and Genomics on the Life and Health insurance industry. Key technological breakthroughs (Liquid Biopsies, SNPs, Whole Genome Sequencing, CRISPR), Types of genetic testing (where, why and when are they used?), and general view of regulation and restrictions by various jurisdictions will be discussed with help of case studies.

Option 2: “Histopathology interpretation made easy- Every detail matters”:  Underwriting an applicant with cancer or assessment of CI claim of cancer requires up-to-date insight about the microscopic features of the underlying condition. In our day to day work, we seldom get a chance to brush upon our knowledge regarding the interpretation of Histopathology Reports. This interactive workshop is aimed at offering a bird’s-eye view on histopathology, starting with basics to a comprehensive updated review of few cancers followed by relevant case studies.
