This continuing medical education course is designed to provide general and community based gastroenterology physicians, general, internal medicine and family medicine physicians, physician’s assistants and nurse practitioners an opportunity to learn about and discuss the advances in the diagnosis and treatment of patients with liver disease and luminal GI diseases. This year’s course will cover topics from a nutritional focus on GI patients (Friday afternoon). On Saturday we will focus on autoimmune hepatitis, the use of an EMR in a GI practice, Barrett’s, pancreatic cysts, ERCP in altered anatomy, Hepatitis C therapies, variceal management, surgical issues in cirrhosis, fecal transplant, and difficult polyp cases. The Friday evening, we will also have a research poster symposium to highlight current research and have some endoscopic hands-on stations. This evening program will provide food and 2 additional hours of CME credit.
