Information for young specialists in Internal Medicine interested in attending EASIM:
1. Who Can Attend
The course is targeted at the European young specialists (not residents) in the first few years after completion of postgraduate training in Internal Medicine, but also more experienced internists are welcome to participate. The course design is based on the well-proven format of the European School of Internal Medicine (ESIM) for residents, so there will also be plenty of opportunities for networking and socializing in a friendly and international atmosphere.
At the Advanced School, we aim to accept 15-20 young specialists from European countries, giving priority to applicants from EFIM member countries (http://www.efim.org/about/member-countries) and those who have previously participated in ESIM. Selection of applicants by the organizing committee will be based on experience and motivation and will also take into consideration the overall balance of the delegate group in terms of experience and geographical origin.
All lectures and classroom interaction will be in English, hence applicants must be fluent in English.
2. How to Apply
Please, complete the online application link HERE - please, complete and submit the application form by Monday, 24th September 2018. If there is a large number of applications, the submission and selection period might close earlier. If you are late with your submission, but still very motivated to attend, please, contact us ASAP to internisti.lv (at) gmail.com as we might still host a few additional participants.
Be ready to include your up-to-date CV, a motivation letter and contact details for a referee (your head of department).
Be ready to mark ONE of the following two options:
- whether you would like to present a challenging clinical case in Internal Medicine in one of these categories:
- „Had never heard about this” (rare disease or clinical manifestation)
- „Had no clue in the beginning” (difficult path to the diagnosis)
- „Which path should I take?” (difficult differential diagnosis)
- „Just nice to demonstrate”
- whether you would like to present a very brief max.10-15' update on a medical topic of your choice, of interest to general internists, in a "Teach Your Colleagues" sessions.
