Under the direction of expert faculty, this course is designed to improve endoscopic practice through live case presentations, video and hands-on demonstrations, didactic lectures including audience interaction and questions, and hands-on training using animal tissue models.
The course goals are to help participants improve their ability to accurately diagnose and effectively treat the spectrum of gastrointestinal diseases and disorders, enhance quality in all practice settings, embrace advances in healthcare delivery, payment systems, and healthcare information sharing; apply state-of-the-art technology in a cost-effective way, understand trends in interventional endoscopic and surgical procedures, and to foster an evidence-based approach to endoscopic decision-making for commonly encountered and controversial problems in gastroenterology.
As gastrointestinal endoscopy continues to experience a rapid expansion of knowledge and technological innovation, and advances in therapeutic endoscopy challenge or entirely replace certain purely diagnostic endoscopy techniques, the need for superior continuing education becomes increasingly important. This course will enable participants to attain and apply cutting edge information and evolving technological innovations to elevate practice levels and enhance patient care and treatment outcomes.
