Applications for the 3rd Emerging Stars course will open in March 2020. The course will take place in 2021–2022 and will follow the design of the previous courses.

The WEO Education Committee, under the leadership of Professor Ibrahim Mostafa of Egypt, has developed the Emerging Stars program to provide promising young doctors with the skills to become leaders in the field, forming the “next generation” network of experts.

The course consists of three modules, with intensive face-to-face training, that take place over 18 – 24 months. Each course has up to 20 participants aged 30–45 years.


During the course, participants are encouraged to enter into multicenter research projects, to develop publications, and eventually to form a network of new leaders.

The WEO Emerging Stars program underscores the importance of engaging upcoming key leaders in the field of endoscopy.
