ESIM Winter Course, Riga, Latvia 6 – 11 February 2017


FDIME Awarded Bursaries to 2 Young Internists:

Dr Sarah Bigeni (Malta), Dr Antreas Ioannou (Cyprus)
Dr Antreas Ioannou, 3rd year Resident in Internal Medicine, Nicosia Univ General Hospital, Cyprus

‘It was truly a privilege to be funded with a bursary from FDIME and participate as the Cyprus representative at ESIM 2017 in Riga. I was really thrilled with whole experience: a very thoroughly organized 5-day school with up-to-dated presentations and practical workshops about “hot” topics of Internal Medicine. Furthermore the case presentations from the fellow participants were really inspiring. Also, socializing with other delegates forged strong and long-lasting relationships and friendships and gave us a perspective of the reality in other European countries. I hope that many more Internal Medicine Residents will have the opportunity to participate in future ESIMs, since they will gain a lot from this unbelievable experience!’

Dr Sarah Bigeni, 3rd year Resident in Internal Medicine, Gozo General Hospital, Malta

‘The best aspect of the study visit was learning what I will find valuable during my practice but at the same time enjoying a different environment with other people I barely know but I grew very fond of and very rapidly so. They say that ESIM is magical and they could not be more correct. It is hard to explain by words a single aspect that was the best thing in the study visit since there are too many. Not only did I learn a lot from ESIM but it also made me admire Dr Ieva Ruza for all the hard work that she did. I do not know from where she gets the energy to organize such a big event’.
