The meeting will begin on Monday 19 June with the Gastroenterology Master Class, which will see world renowned speakers from the UK and abroad provide advice and guidance on how to approach those problematic diagnostic and management challenges which we face in every day practice. What do you do when a patient sits down in front of you and says “Doctor I’m fat but I hardly eat a thing” or “I haven’t opened my bowels for three weeks!”? “Is medical marijuana all smoke and mirrors?” Find out the answers from leading UK and international speakers on Monday through cutting-edge updates and interactive sessions on “Dealing with Gastroenterology Dilemmas”.
The main scientific programme (Tuesday 20 – Thursday 22 June) will include basic and clinical science symposia, state-of-the-art lectures, clinical updates, moderated poster rounds and the industry exhibition. New for 2017 in the exhibition area is a hands on endoscopy village where you will be able to practice your skills on pig models, watch demonstrations, try out new technologies and discuss with experts how to perfect your technique.
Sometimes getting away from your base hospital is difficult. If you aren’t lucky enough to be able to attend the whole meeting you want to ensure you attend on the days which are most relevant to you. To facilitate this we are having themed days at the meeting. For example if hepatology is your main area of interest, Tuesday and Wednesday will suit you best. If IBD is your thing, you shouldn’t miss Wednesday and Thursday. Please check out the programme to make sure you don’t miss out.
