let me express all our enthusiasm for your participation to the next ESIM 2016 School in Sardinia.
We really hope that this can be a successful course both in terms of knowledge and personal interactions between all of us.
The main theme of this year will be “Less is More”.
This topic will be declined in diferent ways, and this year we have the fortune to have two outstanding keynote speakers: Prof. Rita Redberg from San Francisco, Editor of JAMA Internal Medicine, and John P Ioannidis, from Stanford, Professor of Public Health, one of the most highly cited researcher in the world, most known for the 2005 paper “Why Most Published Research Findings Are False”. They will address methodological as well as research aspects related with clinical practice. John Ioannidis, Giancarlo Agnelli, from Italy, and Ramon Pujol, from Spain will talk about their professional and personal experiences and what they would like to be remembered for, during the “To be or not to be” morning session.
Afternoon will be dedicated to teamwork during the workshops. Topics will be: Pericarditis, Pulmonary Embolism, Anemias, Hypo- and Hypernatremia, Infectious Diseases Management.
As you will soon see on the program, we will have, as tradition of the School, Clinical Case Presentations. Please, read carefully theattached “Guidelines for Clinical Case Presentations”. Each country will have to present ONE clinical case to the ESIM group. Thus, please, read the Guidelines and contact by mail the other residents of you country to decide together what case and who is going to present it. Usually, the 10 min presentation is performed by 1 or 2 residents. Of course, if you are the only representative of your country, you will be in charge of preparing and presenting the clinical case by your own.
See you soon in Sardinia!
