Our last in person course was held in March 2019 and was a huge success! We were oversubscribed for the didactic and hands-on stations, and had a good mix of Gastroenterologists (75%) and Surgeons (25%). Course feedback was excellent and many participants returned to their home institutions and incorporated techniques highlighted at this event successfully in their clinical practices! Since COVID, our platform has been virtual so we are excited to be back in person!
At the conclusion of this conference the participant should be able to determine indications and contraindications for advanced endoscopic procedures, describe the role of endoscopy in the management of the bariatric patient, and assess new technology in digestive disease management.
