A Vision for Tomorrow 

The Beyond our Walls: The Future of Endoscopic Education and Practice campaign seeks to build upon the success of the Institute for Training and Technology (IT&T) and to move beyond its physical walls to deliver visionary and innovative clinical education and practice improvement resources to meet the needs of our members.

With the healthcare landscape changing at a rapid pace, there are challenges that must be met in order for ASGE members to remain at the cutting edge of providing high-quality GI care to their patients. The Beyond Our Walls campaign seeks to enable ASGE to address these needs head-on and provide innovative education and practice improvement tools to its members. The time has never been more critical for such an initiative. We hope you will join us!

Delivering Clinical Education Anywhere 

Utilizing distance learning, the Society's goal is to provide educational opportunities to physicians in small rural communities, large metropolitan areas, and emerging global markets. The IT&T will remain the focal point as content is delivered across the globe. All GI physicians will have opportunities to tap into the extensive knowledge and expertise delivered by ASGE's world-class faculty through remote webinars, video series, courses and other 'virtual' offerings that accommodate today's busy physician at prices that encourage participation from an increasingly diverse audience. 

Practical Solutions for Practice Operations 

Beyond our Walls will provide much-needed funding to expand existing practice improvement resources to ensure that ASGE members have opportunities to grow and to navigate today's challenges. Through this campaign, online education, regional courses, and existing educational opportunities will all be incorporated into an integrated approach to practice improvement.
