The Spring Course is devoted to a review of the most compelling topics discussed during Digestive Disease Week® 2020. Faculty will present critically important information on new drugs, the etiology and pathophysiology of disease states, the epidemiology of diseases, the medical, surgical and endoscopic treatment of disease, and the social impact of disease states pertaining to gastroenterology, endoscopy, and liver disease.
The program includes a video forum of new endoscopic techniques as well as a summary of the major topics presented at the most important academic forum in gastroenterology, making for an invaluable educational experience for those who were unable to attend Digestive Disease Week® and an excellent summary review for those who were there.
