1 July 2017
FDIME awarded educational bursaries to:
Zane Svikle (Latvia) and Nikola Panic (Serbia).
Report from Zane Svikle 3rd year Resident in Internal Medicine at Pauls Stradins Clinical University Hospital, Riga, Latvia
I was sure I will learn many new things in ESIM, but in reality, I got so much more than expected. I expanded my mind and refreshed my passion for Internal Medicine. My best experience was with the sonography workshop, lecture on delirium and “choosing wisely” workshop. I have met many brilliant colleagues and lecturers. I am really grateful for the opportunity what FDIME has been given for me offering the bursary to attend the ESIM.
Report from Nikola Panic 5th year Resident in Internal Medicine at University Clinic, Dr Dragisa Misovic-Dedinje, Belgrade, Serbia
I had opportunity to attend European Summer School of Internal Medicine (ESIM) in Ede, Netherlands in period 25.06.2017.-01.07.2017. thanks to the FDIME Bursary. I would like to point out that the Summer School has not only met my expectations but far beyond. The lectures and workshops were designed in order to meet the needs of internal medicine residents all over the Europe. The quality of lectures was exceptional and lectures useful from the point of view of everyday clinical practice, but also teaching us how to recognize and treat some conditions we do not encounter very often. Lecturers were interactive, including and encouraging residents to participate in the discussions, keen to hear our comments and experiences. I would definitely recommend any young internist in Europe to take part in this great event and for those who need a support I would encourage them to address FDIME with their application as I am sure that their quality, willingness to learn and desire for improvement will be recognized.
