EUS WISE WORKSHOP
We are very glad to announce that we have enhanced WISE program with the EUS WISE workshop. The aim of the workshop is to increase the accessibility and discussion about interesting cases and difficult procedures in EUS. WEO believes this activity will engage international experts to share their own experiences and best practices on how to perform EUS and manage patients with complex medical issues.
The next EUS WISE Workshop will be held in collaboration with SOBED at the upcoming XVIII Semana Brasiliera do Aparelho Digestivo (SBAD) in Fortaleza, Brazil. For more information about the program, please view here.
