Organizing Committee IEEF-2017

The International Educational Endoscopy video Forum (IEEF-2017) was held on October 5-6, 2017 in Sochi, the southern capital of the Russian Federation and pearl of the North Caucasus. Some of the highlights of this unforgettable two-day endoscopic forum included video-endoscopic demonstrations of classical and exclusive methods of diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the digestive system, as well as rare clinical cases.

The aim of this event was to share knowledge on correct methodologies for performing relatively standard, as well as cutting edge endoscopic procedures, with a focus on practical demonstrations as the teaching medium.

The members of the Scientific Committee provided a comprehensive program consisting of highly professional videos, allowing all participants to view the full extent of possibilities of diagnostic and interventional endoscopy in the clinical sphere of internal disease. Interaction with the WEO enriched the forum with the knowledge and experience of International Faculty experts.

Theoretical-symposiums consisted of interactive discussion of interesting and rare clinical cases with leading faculty experts in VCE (Jean-Francoise Rey, Rami Eliakim, Ekaterina Ivanova), Colonoscopy (Bjorn Rembacken, Takuji Kawamura, Evgeny Fedorov), EUS (Marc Giovannini, Mikhail Burdykov) and other topics. The innovative format of the IEEF provided the opportunity to learn and to see rare footage of Endoscopic Videos.

IEEF-2017 was a forum for endoscopy professionals to share their knowledge and engage in creative discussions around the latest endoscopy topics, against a backdrop of sea and mountains at the beautiful southern city of Sochi. More than 450 people had the opportunity to collaborate on the IEEF platform,strengthening networks and professional relationships!

Several weeks have passed and we continue to receive positive feedback and warm words for the organizers of the event along with suggestions to continue with the event in the future!

The first supported WEO video Forum in Russia passed with an excellent rating – the event was a great success and should continue to broaden its audience and geography!
