The Education Weekend aims to address topics which are covered less frequently at local or regional training days, helping trainees to fulfil the more difficult to achieve curriculum competencies. FY/CMTs interested in Gastroenterology are also welcome to attend.

The programme will feature talks on:

  • Care of GI disease in pregnancy
  • IgG4 disease
  • Radiological investigations for IBD
  • Care of patient before and after liver transplantation  
  • Gastrointestinal worm infestations
  • Extra-intestinal manifestations of IBD
  • Lesion recognition
     

The evening dinner includes an address with by an esteemed gastroenterologist, while our annual trainees' debate is on the subject of "Does screening for Barrett's Oesophagus have a place in today's practice?"
