Functional GI Disorders School: 8 CME Credits, 8 MOC Points

ACG/VGS/ODSGNA Regional Postgraduate Course: 12.5 CME Credits, 12.5 MOC Points

Course Description:

Bring your entire practice and join colleagues at these two outstanding programs developed specifically for gastroenterologists, gastroenterology trainees, primary care physicians, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, pharmacists, therapists, and other members of the GI patient care team.

These programs are ideal for health care providers who are looking for a comprehensive update but don’t want to spend valuable time away from the office. For the second year, we have added a full day of education on Friday, nearly doubling the total education time offered for the weekend. ACG’s new Functional GI Disorders School is a day-long interactive educational program that focuses on the diagnosis, treatment, and understanding of IBS and other functional disease states.

The ACG / VGS / ODSGNA Regional Postgraduate Course will be offered all day Saturday and a half-day Sunday, with an agenda that features presentations on upper GI disorders, pancreas/biliary issues, hepatology, lower GI/functional disorders, IBD, innovations in endoscopy, legislative issues, and a special symposium on obesity. In addition, the Keynote lecture, Addressing the Epidemic of Burnout in Gastroenterology, will provide valuable pearls to recognize predictors, describe the steps that can be taken to mitigate burnout, and identify ways to facilitate work life balance. The program will also feature a special nursing-sponsored session on Saturday afternoon on Infection Prevention, as well as fellows’ case presentations illustrating difficult GI management issues.
