Orlando Health Digestive Health Institute Center for Advanced Endoscopy, Research and Education (CARE) is pleased to invite you to experience Florida Live Endoscopy 2022. This symposium is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive education in advanced endoscopy. The symposium will have eight components: live demonstrations, state-of-the-art lectures, breakfast sessions, interactive luncheon sessions, industry-sponsored satellite symposiums, self-assessment, hands-on-training and a parallel symposium for nurses and technicians. The live demonstrations will encompass ERCP, EUS, tissue resection, third space interventions, luminal therapies and bariatric endoscopy. In order to maximize the educational experience, a major focus of the live demonstrations will be to teach critical procedural steps and technical nuances.

State-of-the-art lectures will cover key topics that will be followed by a lively Q & A session. Panel discussions have been incorporated where interesting cases will be deliberated with the active participation of all delegates via the use of a dedicated mobile app. Small group breakfast sessions will provide an opportunity for delegates to interact with faculty in an informal setting. The last day of the symposium is dedicated to hands-on training and didactic sessions that will cover bariatrics, pancreaticobiliary endoscopy and tissue resection. A syllabus book will be provided to all participating delegates that will contain critical information relevant to the practice of endoscopy.

A special focus of FLE 2022 will be a parallel symposium dedicated to endoscopy nurses and technicians. A world-class endoscopy unit requires a dedicated team of well-rounded competent personnel, which means the nursing and technical staff must be well-trained. We encourage you to bring your nurses and technicians to FLE 2022 to attend the parallel symposium which will be dedicated to their education and hands-on training.

We sincerely hope that you will find Florida Live Endoscopy 2022 to be of the highest educational value, as well as an enjoyable and an unparalleled experience.

Come join us in Orlando where the magic of endoscopy begins!
