Given the pandemic and the need for continued medical education WEO Webinar Committee was formed in 2021. With the guidance of the Committee Chair Dr. Raju WEO webinars have become a very popular meeting place for the global community of endoscopists. WEO is grateful to all the participants, program chairs and faculty.

2021 Webinar series will end with a series of workshops organized by Professor Krish Ragunath, Chair of the WEO Research Committee. The research workshop program is spread over 3 weeks and will be conducted on December 1, December 8, and December 15. Please take this opportunity to learn everything about research and publications. Webinar director Professor Ragunath says:

The WEO Research Committee have organized a webinar series to discuss the basics of starting research in the field of GI endoscopy. Global leaders in the field of academic endoscopy will provide insights plus tips and tricks on how to be a successful researcher.
