The European School of Internal Medicine (ESIM) is a meeting aimed at young physicians training in internal medicine throughout Europe. Since 1998 the school has been held annually, and in this report we reflect on our experiences during the recent school in Brighton in July 2010. The school combined a broad mix of lectures, workshops and case presentations covering a variety of rare diseases, and both faculty and residents participated with noticeable enthusiasm, making this a special experience for all of us. The school also provided an opportunity to compare and discuss topical professional issues in internal medicine in Europe and was a memorable social gathering for physicians who share a strong interest in internal medicine.
