Overview

Are you a Senior GI Fellow interested in sharpening your knowledge and skills before transitioning to practice? 

Register to participate in ASGE's new program to advance your understanding of small bowel and anorectal diseases, GERD, Barrett’s Esophagus and other motility disorders. Leading ASGE faculty members will engage fellows through focused topic discussions during webinars, leading to an immersive program using case studies and hands-on interactive training at the ASGE Institute for Training and Technology (IT&T).

If you or your colleagues have participated in ASGE’s First Year Fellows Program, this is the perfect next step in a successive level of educational experiences with ASGE. We will begin by hosting a monthly webinar series from January through March for second- and third-year fellows and early career GI endoscopists. Registration will open in December and is complimentary. 

The immersive program will take place April 5-6, 2019, at the IT&T. ASGE will provide travel stipends for up to 35 third-year fellows to attend the onsite program. Participation in the Live course is only granted if the three webinars have been completed. Participants must register for each webinar individually as well as for the live course.

Participation is on a first-come, first-serve basis, and registration will open in 2019. For additional information, contact Liz O’Keefe at lokeefe@asge.org.
