Beyond Our Walls Campaign

A Vision for Tomorrow

Today's healthcare environment poses many challenges and opportunities to the practice of gastroenterology. ASGE is committed to helping our members thrive in this ever-changing landscape. 
The Beyond our Walls: The Future of Endoscopic Education and Practice campaign seeks to build upon the success of the Institute for Training and Technology (IT&T) and to move beyond its physical walls to deliver visionary and innovative clinical education and practice improvement resources to meet the needs of our members.

ASGE is the "go-to" society for all things endoscopy. With the landscape changing at a rapid pace, there are challenges that must be met in order for ASGE members to remain at the cutting edge of providing high-quality GI care to their patients. The Beyond Our Walls campaign seeks to enable ASGE to address these needs head-on and provide innovative education and practice improvement tools to its members. The time has never been more critical for such an initiative. We hope you will join us!

Delivering Clinical Education Anywhere

As endoscopists' time for education experiences becomes more scarce, courses must be provided through a multitude of delivery systems that accommodate today's busy physician. Utilizing distance learning, the Society's goal is to provide the same educational opportunities to physicians in small rural communities, large metropolitan areas, and emerging global markets. The IT&T will remain ASGE's home base and focal point as content is delivered across the globe. All GI physicians will have opportunity to tap into the extensive knowledge and expertise of ASGE's world-class faculty through remote webinars, video series, courses and other 'virtual' offerings at prices that encourage participation from an increasingly diverse audience of physicians.

Practical Solutions for Practice Operations

Today's challenging healthcare environment forces endoscopists to adapt quickly. The future of GI endoscopy is dependent on the delivery of high-quality clinical care, as well as a solid understanding of the business aspects of GI practice. 

Beyond Our Walls will provide much-needed funding to expand existing practice improvement resources to ensure that ASGE members have opportunities to grow and to navigate today's challenges as they relate to compliance and regulatory changes.

Through this campaign, online education, regional courses, and existing educational opportunities will all be incorporated into an integrated approach to practice improvement.

A Focus on Innovation and Technology

The practice of endoscopy is changing at a rapid pace. As such, ASGE will be focusing intently on education related to advances that are changing the face of our subspecialty. A focus on innovation and new technologies will ensure that physicians are prepared to deploy new techniques, devices, and treatments in a way that promotes quality, efficiency, and effectiveness.

At the IT&T, the Innovation Room will be utilized during educational events to showcase new technologies in an interactive and engaging setting. This special exhibit will be the new hub for introducing new devices and technologies, and educating end-users on how to use these advancements in practice.
