Frontline Gastroenterology is pleased to announce a new and exciting educational initiative in the form of 'Frontline Gastroenterology Twitter Debates' with online debates and discussions hosted by expert clinicians and academics from around the world. This is your chance to ask the experts directly about clinical issues that affect you on the 'Frontline'.
The debates will held monthly on Tuesday evenings at 8pm-9pm GMT and lead by @FrontGastro_BMJ using #FGDebate. If you are new to Twitter or need to join, don't worry it takes 2 minutes (www.twitter.com) and is very easy to use and follow! For those of you not currently on Twitter, please don’t be afraid: you can easily edit your profile so that you won’t be committed to interactions you don’t want.
We are delighted to announce that the first debate will be lead by Dr Bjorn Rembacken (@Bjorn_Rembacken), Consultant Gastroenterologist, Specialist Endoscopist and UEG Website Editor, and keen twitter educationalist - this will be on 23rd September 2014, at 8-9pm GMT and discuss, 'Frontline Endoscopy: Colonic EMR vs ESD - which one and when?'
Our second debate will be lead by Dr Charlie Lees (@charlie_lees), Consultant Gastroenterologist and IBD Specialist, on 14th October 2014, at 8-9pm GMT and discuss, 'Frontline IBD: Finding the cause of IBD - genes, bugs or diet?'
Please follow @Bjorn_Rembacken, @charlie_lees and @FrontGastro_BMJ as well as follow #FGDebate and join the first ever debates! More information will posted on http://fg.bmj.com in the next few weeks. We look forward to you joining the debate.
Hands-On Gastrointestinal Motility Training Course
Tuesday, 26 August 2014 13:22
Ege University School of Medicine Sect. Gastroenterology, Izmir, Turkey.
- Application deadline: 1 October 2014, participants to be informed within two weeks.
- Applicants must be born January 1, 1974 or later.
- 20 participants will attend. Participants are going to be selected by the faculty according to a country quota.
The Course is organized by the European Society of Neurogastroenterology and Motility (ESNM) in association with the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) and Turkish Society of Gastroenterology (TSG) and supported by an educational grant from UEG.
Aim of the Course:
Recent years have seen important advances in the clinical investigation and treatment of patients with gastrointestinal (GI) dysmotility, functional GI diseases and continence problems. As a result there is also increasing demand from clinical fellows and young investigators for knowledge and training in this area of medicine. This course will address this need by bringing small groups together with experts in the field to gain experience with a wide range of techniques used in the assessment of GI function and to discuss their application in swallowing difficulties, reflux symptoms, continence problems and other functional GI diseases. At the end of the course, participants will have received practical training in:
- Application and Analysis of key technologies including esophageal high-resolution manometry (HRM), pH-impedance reflux studies, anorectal HRM and continence function tests for constipation and incontinence. The position of new technologies will also be discussed.
- Classification-diagnosis of dysmotility, functional GI disorders and continence problems based on clinical presentation and findings of physiological investigation
- Management of motility, functional GI disorders and continence problems

Hepatology at a Glance
Friday, 11 January 2013 15:31
With the start of the new year, we are pleased to announce that we had an overwhelming response to the call for applications to co-author Hepatology at a Glance. The quality of the applications was quite outstanding but there were 2 clear winners, Dr Deepak Joshi and Dr Geri Keane: they join Dr Alison Brind Senior Editor, on the team. We have also nominated Dr Ahmir Ahmad to champion the junior general medical trainee viewpoint and to bring his very specific general editorial expertise to the project. If successful we hope that there will be further opportunities to collaborate with Wiley-Blackwell in this way and would encourage many of you who submitted excellent applications to keep these future ventures in mind.
