Dr Mustafa Hussein Ajlan Al-Jarshawi, NIHR Academic Clinical Fellow in Medicine at University Hospitals Plymouth NHS Trust (UHP), has been selected by the Royal College of Physicians to represent UK trainee doctors in stage 1 and stage 2 internal medicine specialty training programmes in the 2024 European School of Internal Medicine (ESIM), organised by the European Federation of Internal Medicine (EFIM).
The Swedish International Medicine Society (SIM) is hosting the 12th edition of the school in February 2024 in Björkliden, Sweden, where 50 junior doctors from across 25 countries in Europe will come to represent their country and benefit from specialist training, workshops, and lectures in Internal Medicine alongside networking and sharing knoMustafa in a suitwledge from different countries and practices.

Mustafa is the only doctor selected to represent the UK, and says he feels honoured to attend: “The application process for this was very competitive and extensive, I feel extremely privileged to represent my fellow doctors enrolled in both core and higher medical specialty training programmes across the UK in this event.”

“I am looking forward to getting more practice with hands on training, and learning new knowledge and skills that I will be able to use in my day-to-day clinical practice, as well as pass on what I’ve learned to others when I return home.”

The doctors attending the winter school will also have a chance to socialise and make lasting connections throughout the trip. “I am also really looking forward to the social aspect of it, as it will allow me to learn from other physicians and build valuable connections.”

Dr. Al-Jarshawi is also looking forward to his time visiting Sweden: “This trip is extremely exciting for me on a personal level as well, there are a lot of things I would like to do during my time in Sweden. I am particularly looking forward to visiting the Nobel assembly at Karolinska institutet that awards the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine and seeing the Northern Lights.”

Mustafa has been awarded the ‘Myre Sim funding’ from the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh to help facilitate his participation in this event.
