This continuing medical education program is designed to update physicians and other health care providers practicing in gastroenterology and hepatology about new approaches to the diagnosis and management of gastrointestinal and liver diseases. Faculty will present data on multiple topics, including inflammatory bowel disease, colorectal neoplasia, general GI, esophageal, motility, nutrition, pancreaticobiliary disorders, endoscopy and hepatology.
Controversies in diagnosis and management will be analyzed in discussions and concurrent breakout sessions. Complex endoscopy cases and cutting-edge technology will be presented by expert endoscopists in a video forum. Optional sessions will be offered to help gastroenterologists and hepatologists prepare for recertification and obtain maintenance of certification credit.
A unique feature of the 2016 course will include participation by the Presidents of all four gastroenterology societies and who are also Mayo Clinic faculty (Drs. Keith D. Lindor, Kenneth R. DeVault, Michael Camilleri and Douglas O. Faigel, of AASLD, ACG, AGA and ASGE, respectively). Attendees will have an opportunity to interact with the Presidents at breakfast and luncheon sessions.
