Get Recognized in GI!
The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy supports industry's efforts to have knowledgeable, GI-practice "ready" sales associates, and is pleased to announce the ASGE Recognized Industry Associate (ARIA) program, a new initiative dedicated to industry professionals.
The content has been developed for GI sales and marketing professionals, and the programs are created and taught by leading GI experts. With comprehensive, thorough and non-biased education in the field of gastroenterology provided through our training program, your representatives can become partners to ASGE physician members and other health care providers - supporting positive health outcomes for patients.
Through a live course, the new ASGE ARIA program creates a common language and a shared understanding for improved communication and more successful dialogue between clinicians and industry representatives. The program covers all of the subjects that are important to the professional health care providers that industry representatives are meeting with every day, including clinical knowledge, disease mechanisms and clinical treatment. Attendees of the program will receive unparalleled educational content created by recognized leaders in gastroenterology.
This course is intended to provide an overview of basic GI anatomy and physiology as well as commonly encountered gastrointestinal diseases and their endoscopic findings through a lecture-based format. A hands-on experience will introduce both basic and advanced endoscopic techniques. To ensure industry representatives are being recognized for their efforts, participants who successfully complete the ARIA course are recognized with the ASGE “ARIA Seal,” an ASGE Certificate of Completion, and also receive a number of other prestigious recognition benefits and marketing tools.
Colleagues who are new to GI or could use a refresher are encouraged to attend this course.
Impact of ARIA Industry Training
ASGE conducts a pre- and post-test among all participants to gauge results of the course in terms of increased knowledge and understanding of the GI industry. Results are shared with the participants and their respective organizations. From its inception the results show a significant increase in participants’ basic GI knowledge. Avg score – pre-test: 60% Avg score – post-test: 93%
