Overview

Orlando Health Center for Advanced Endoscopy, Research and Education (CARE) is pleased to invite you to experience Florida Live Endoscopy 2024. This biennial symposium is designed to provide participants with a comprehensive education in advanced endoscopy. The symposium will have seven components: live demonstrations, state-of-the- art lectures, breakfast sessions, interactive luncheon sessions, industry-sponsored satellite symposiums, self-assessment, and hands-on-training.

To maximize educational experience and ensure optimal procedural outcomes, a major focus at live demonstrations will be to teach critical procedural steps and technical nuances. The live demonstrations have been organized into sections that encompass ERCP, EUS, tissue resection, third space interventions, luminal therapies, and novel innovations. Panel discussion at live demonstrations will highlight evidence-based approaches to commonly encountered challenges in therapeutic endoscopy, explore alternate treatment options and the management of adverse events.

State-of-the-art lectures will cover key topics that will be followed by a lively Q & A session. Industry-sponsored luncheon and evening symposiums will incorporate interesting cases which will be deliberated by faculty at panel discussions with active participation of all delegates via the use of a dedicated mobile app. Fourteen breakfast sessions have been organized where delegates can meet with faculty in an informal small group setting and learn firsthand from experts. A self-assessment examination will be conducted by the course organizers to enable delegates evaluate their knowledge base in therapeutic endoscopy.

The last day of the symposium is dedicated to hands-on training where delegates can learn the latest techniques and innovations in therapeutic endoscopy. Didactic sessions on the last day 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.

We sincerely hope that you will find Florida Live Endoscopy 2024 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!
