Quality is the constant that ensures patient safety and efficient management. With this in mind, Fabian Emura, WEO President, and Prateek Sharma, Chair of the WEO Esophageal Disease Committee created the High Quality in Upper GI Endoscopy Live Courses, to help participants advance their basic endoscopic skills by a comprehensive review of upper endoscopy quality parameters and discussion with experts.

More recently, the course was successfully transformed to a virtual format including live specific demonstrations. Based on this important educational achievement, several courses are planned for the 2nd semester of 2021 (July 30/31, August 27/28, September 24/25, and October 29/30). Topics include fundamentals for performing upper endoscopy to a high standard with emphasis on quality parameters. The program is highly interactive, with simultaneous voting and quiz sessions.
