The Spring Course: Best of DDW 2019

June 1, 2019

The Spring Course is devoted to a review of the most compelling topics in gastroenterology, endoscopy, and liver disease as presented during Digestive Disease Week®, May 18-21, 2019. At this event, the most significant data from national and international research efforts is presented, affording attendees a first look at 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 in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, and GI surgery.

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.
