ESSAT GI Surgical skills Hands on Area

at the UEG Week 19-23 October 2019, Barcelona,  Spain
ESSAT UEG Surgical Block Hands on Training centre

United European Gastroenterology (UEG) Week is Europe's premier meeting where new clinical and basic science research is presented to 13,000 specialists from across the globe. It covers a wide range of digestive disease areas, cutting-edge post-graduate teaching sessions, some of the best GI abstracts, posters and simultaneous live streams to a global audience and endoscopic, ultrasound and surgical hands-on training.
The UEG Surgical block, ESSAT, is continuing the successes of the previous 3 years of surgical learning by adding yet another 4th course (and even the potential of a fifth course to be confirmed).
The program is aimed to offer surgeons a true value-add opportunity of significant hands on training by experienced and recognized faculty with the potential of certification and providing a trajectory towards specific UEMS diplomas in the various aspects of digestive surgery.
In addition, it is also tailored to stimulate a multi-disciplinary approach linking the surgical perspective to the full spectrum of GI disease management.
With the focus on curricula-based learning pathways, the UEG Surgical block aims to build towards a clear focus on either upper GI, HPB or colorectal surgery. Note the program is always subject to change and most courses require your registration and potential eligibility assessments.
