The highly popular two-day course is tailored for Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) within the gastroenterology clinical team. This comprehensive course, now in its fifth year, aims to educate APPs of all experience levels. The first day covers essential topics such as onboarding for new APPs, fundamental aspects of GI consultation and endoscopic practices, and principles of collaborative practice between APPs and physicians. On the second day, explore more advanced concepts in GI endoscopy, achalasia, inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) and abnormal liver tests.

This course is a valuable resource for quality GI education for APPs, aiming to facilitate effective collaboration between APPs and physicians and effectively integrate new APPs into the GI team. Participate in the first day, second day or both days based on your specific practice needs.

New this year is case-based studies in radiology, focusing on various conditions that include:

  • Small bowel obstruction
  • Common bile duct stones
