18-19 September 2021

 

Join us for the second annual course focusing on the clinical education of first-year fellows at the start of their Gastroenterology fellowship. The FOCUS First Year GI Fellows Course brings an exciting educational activity focusing on the introduction of first-year fellows to clinical work in various fields with Gastroenterology: Hepatology, Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), and Pancreatico-Biliary.

 

This 1.5-day course will bring together internationally and nationally recognized thought leaders to provide the core tenets and practical clinical insights within the various fields focusing on the basics for a first-year fellow.

The singular focus of the course is providing a clinical foundation for first-year fellows in hepatology, IBD, and pancreatico-biliary. Our First Year Course will have the opportunity to learn and interact with leaders in the field of Gastroenterology and help establish a solid foundation to help throughout their training.
