The Euro Mediterranean School was founded in 2005 in Syracuse, where the school activities are located. The school was born as the will of the Mediterranean Forum of Physical and Rehabilitation Medicine in association with the Scientific Societies of Rehabilitation, SIMFER in particular.

The charter members of the School, named Euro Mediterranean Rehabilitation Summer School (EMRSS), were: the national and regional SIMFER (Italian society of Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation); the Archimedes University Consortium, the Megara Ibleo University consortium. Simultaneously with the School Charter, the regulation for the School functioning was approved, as well as the Board of directors with Dr Francesco Cirillo, founder of the School, as the first President.

The School aims at implementing, on an annual base, a highly specializing program addressed to young Medical trainees in Physical Medicine and rehabilitation. The program theme, chosen every year, is developed by major experts in the field and allows the trainees to improve their competence about the subject. Each year, the trainees ( representatives from the Euro Mediterranean area ) are chosen by the presidents of the scientific societies of the different countries.
