Course Description
Gastroenterologists are frequently exposed to interesting and difficult cases. Presentation and large group discussion of such cases can expose many more physicians to complex cases and improve knowledge and patient management. In this program, up to eight interesting, unusual, or otherwise challenging cases will be presented by NYSGE fellows and discussed by attendees. All accepted presentations will be considered for inclusion in the endoscopic video forum at the 2020 Annual New York Course in December. Those selected will be notified by October 26, 2020.
Learning Objectives
  • Outline the endoscopic evaluation, findings and treatment of challenging cases
  • Analyze the associated radiologic and/or pathologic findings associated with these cases
  • Discuss the clinical presentation, endoscopic management, and follow-up of these cases
