Second Edition of the European Advanced School of Internal Medicine hosted in Riga in November 2019

Last month, the newly formed Early Career group hosted the second edition of the European Advanced School of Internal Medicine in Riga. Eighteen delegates from 14 countries took part, all recently appointed specialists in Internal Medicine. The two and a half day programme was intense and packed with sessions on giving feedback, leadership skills, communication skills and physician wellbeing to name but a few of our non-technical skills workshops. Additionally there were clincial sessions, and the delegates themselves provided updates on a variety of topics related to Internal Medicine. All this was rounded up with a short but very enjoyable social programme, which proved invaluable for networking and for getting to know each other. Feedback from the delegates included:   - 'I really appreciated the combination of technical medical topics and soft skills, which are often neglected' - 'Bringing together a variety of doctors from different countries for a short time in a small space was a great learning experience for me'  - 'Made me once more appreciate my professional choice to become a doctor' - 'Directly after the course I would have given it a 10 out of 10 points. Now, having worked for only one week after the course, I realise even more how important the course was and how much it already helps in my everyday life as a doctor - so: 11/10 points!' The next edition of EASIM is planned for November 2020. Spaces are strictly limited in order to ensure an immersive learning experience. Keep an eye out for registration details! December 2019
