In addition to extensive live endoscopy demonstrations and keynote lectures by superstar national and international faculty, our unique format will include faculty led lunch time symposia focusing on the various aspects of therapeutic endoscopy as well as video sessions that encourage opportunities to demonstrate rare cases not typically performed during live courses in the U.S. The pancreaticobiliary endoscopy sessions will illustrate basic and advanced principles and techniques of EUS/ERCP, cholangiopancreatoscopy and interventional EUS. The luminal endoscopy sessions will focus on techniques such as Barrett’s endoscopic therapy, therapies for GERD, EMR, ESD, POEM and EUS-guided anastomosis creation. The bariatric endoscopy sessions will demonstrate primary endoscopic therapies, as well as novel techniques to manage the complications of bariatric surgery. Therapeutic endoscopy hands-on training labs are offered with training performed by world-renowned experts. In short, this unique course featuring global endoscopists will ensure detailed and comprehensive illustration of optimal techniques to enhance endoscopic skills, while simultaneously introducing advanced and novel procedures/techniques to endoscopists.
