A well recognized outstanding educational activity for European Young Internists from EFIM member countries is the European School of Internal Medicine (ESIM). The participants of the School are young doctors who are towards the end of their training in Internal Medicine. They are selected and sponsored by their national societies to attend the School, usually 40 – 50 each year with 20 – 25 countries being represented. As a result of the School’s activities since 1998, close to 2000 residents have passed through the European School and they now form the basis of the growing Young Internists network being developed by the Federation.
Tailored to continue various educational activities, to fill the gap in Internal Medicine postgraduate training for recently appointed specialists after completed training in Internal Medicine (Early in Career internists) in Europe and to promote the clinical and non-clinical education mix with networking opportunities in a small-scale course, the European Advanced School of Internal Medicine (EASIM) format was designed and successfully launched in November 2018 in Riga, Latvia under the Directorship of Dr. Ieva Ruža, continued in 2019, then postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemics, and relaunched in July 2022 in a face-to-face meeting format, as a pilot version, endorsed by the Latvian Society of Internal Medicine.
You are cordially invited!
