ASGE-JGES Masters Course in ESD W/optional POEM Add-on

Dates: September 21 - 23, 2018

Join the American Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) and the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society (JGES) for a world-class educational opportunity in endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD). 

There are limited spaces left for the live course at the ASGE IT&T. Sign up to register for the live course or to attend the didactic portion of the course via simulcast!

Your simulcast registration consists of the the didactic presentations. You’ll still experience the course’s interactive features with on-site faculty dedicated to remote learners. They’ll be on hand to facilitate your participation in real-time Q&A sessions.

All course participants will receive complimentary access to the on-demand didactic course recordings 30 days after the completion of the course. 

Course Overview

Learn from an International Team of Outstanding Masters in ESD!

Learn from masters of endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD) and Per-oral Endoscopic Myotomy (POEM.)

This two-day course has been developed to provide a comprehensive experience in ESD that will take the advanced practicing endoscopist from theory to the hands-on practice of ESD, discussing and demonstrating the fine points of the technique. Participants will become familiar with aspects of ESD that have not been taught before, such as treatment of GI bleeding during ESD and using devices including hemostatic forceps and clips.

Faculty presentations will include indications and methods for ESD. Live course participants will engage in intensive hands-on experience with expert faculty.  

Who should attend

This course is designed for advanced GI endoscopists, surgeons, and others in the GI field who are interested in learning the most advanced technique in mucosal resection. Retuning attendees are welcomed and encouraged to improve your skills.
