Last year’s conference brought together almost 250 participants, with 95% rating the course as excellent and 93% stating they would recommend the course to a colleague. Hear what some of our 2014 participants had to say when asked about the best part of the conference:

  • GI-specific, has all components of the practice (great for managers!)
  • Getting me thinking about the big picture. “Restarting the thought engine”
  • Gaining knowledge on the ever-changing, demanding landscape of healthcare
    The faculty members are outstanding and their insight into the world of GI is invaluable
  • I cannot distinguish just one thing; the collaborative information give over the entire conference was what made it great…thanks!
