Overview

This symposium will include clinically relevant information within an educational environment designed for optimal learning.

The increasing pace of inventions and innovations makes mastery of knowledge a challenge when it comes to digestive disorders. But that knowledge is essential for delivering state-of-the-art care.

Through a combination of instructional presentations and interactive case-based discussions, internationally recognized faculty will provide insight into six frequently encountered clinical areas:

  • Motility Disorders
  • Liver Diseases
  • Functional Bowel Disorders
  • Luminal Diseases
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Diagnostic and Therapeutic Challenges in the Pancreas and Bile Duct

Knowledge gained from attending will allow you to implement these changes and improve quality of care at your practice.

The symposium is designed for all gastroenterologists, gastroenterology fellows, primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners interested in the latest information on diagnostic and therapeutic options for patients with gastrointestinal disorders.

This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) through the joint providership of Continuing Education Company, Inc. and Orlando Health Digestive Health Institute.
