The European Society of Physical & Rehabilitation Medicine is a scientific European Society for physicians in the field of physical and rehabilitation medicine. ESPM was founded in 2003, although the European Federation of the PRM Societies  was created back in 1963. Over the years PRM enriched its role all over Europe, gaining responsibilities in Health Services in 21 national societies.

PRM has been recognized in Greece since 1973 and Hellenic Society of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine (HSPRM) was founded in 1974 to support clinical practice and develop scientific evidence in the field of rehabilitation.


The International Academy of Oral Oncology (IAOO) was established in April 2005 in Crete by Alexander Rapidis (University of Athens and Greek Anticancer Institute), Crispian Scully (University College of London and Eastman Dental Institute) and John Langdon (King’s College Hospital Medical College of London).

The scientific Association drew together clinicians and scientists from around the world, who are active in the field of oral oncology. The main purpose of this “gathering” of leading colleagues, with substantial contributions in the scientific literature, publications and long lasting educational and didactic achievements, is to serve in the fight against oral cancer through medical science.
