Gastroenterology Masterclass

Thursday, 13 February 2014 10:34

We proudly open the BSG conference 2014 with the innovative 'Gastroenterology Masterclass' – a one-day interactive educational symposium lead by international experts in both Gastroenterology and Hepatology. With lectures combining 'gold standard' clinical guidelines with 'tips from the shop floor' the Masterclass is the perfect opportunity for both junior and senior gastroenterologists to benefit from the unique insights our experts provide when approaching both common and complex clinical problems.

The 'Gastroenterology Masterclass' has something for everyone – from luminal bowel disease, to hepatology, pancreatobiliary disease and functional disorders. In addition, the day ends with the 'Gastroenterology Masterclass' special symposium for all delegates to attend 'Gastroenterology in Extreme Circumstances' hosted by the BSG Trainees Section, covering the role of gastroenterology and nutrition in the most challenging and unique environments known to mankind. Finally, we are proud to present Chris Boardman delivering a special GastroCycle 2014 talk to celebrate the completion of the London to Manchester charity bike ride in aid of CORE.

The organizing committee has literally gone to the ends of the earth and climbed the highest mountains to ensure the most exciting opening to the BSG in years! It aims to be a 'not to be missed event' on the BSG 2014 calendar.

We look forward to seeing you there!
