Developed by WGO in 2001, this workshop concentrates on expanding the educational skills of educators in the fields of gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy, and GI surgery, who are responsible for teaching, through the use of current educational techniques and philosophies. It brings together faculty and participants from across the globe in an intensive and interactive workshop, characterized by numerous hands-on sessions with ample opportunity for discussion. An ability to communicate proficiently in English is an essential component within the breakout sessions as well as contributes to the overall success of the workshop.
