Exchange Programme 2013
EFIM EXCHANGE PROGRAM
The EFIM Exchange Working Group would like to introduce you this Project.
The aim of Exchange Program is to promote short internships, of approximately one month, among our European higher specialist trainees, which will take place in Internal Medicine Units of other countries across Europe. The Exchange Pilot Experience took place during 2012. A total of 8 EFIM National Societies participated in this Program: France, Israel, Italy, Latvia, Portugal, Slovakia, Spain and Turkey. The reports from the residents were excellent. The experience was very successful and productive. Now we would like to announce the opening of Phase 2.
In the year 2013 EFIM will sponsor a maximum of 12 scholarships of 600 euros each, which could be increased with an additional amount at the discretion of the National Society. We hope that other countries could send us the information regarding centres and tutors who are
responsible for the program.
For furtherdetails please visit the EXCHANGE webpage.
Do not miss the opportunity to participate in this great European experience!
With Best Regards,
Carla Araujo on behalf of EFIM Exchange Program Working Group.
