Clinical Congress Will Provide Valuable Information for Entire GI Practice
The AGA Institute is holding its fourth Clinical Congress of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the Loews Miami Beach Hotel, FL. Held over Martin Luther King weekend, Jan. 13-16, 2011, this year’s congress includes four days of integrated, educational programming relevant to the entire GI practice — physicians, clinical staff and practice managers/administrators. Sessions will explore the very latest in clinical gastroenterology, endoscopy and practice management, and offer a total of 38.75 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™.
Congress events include:
- AGA Clinical Congress main sessions, Best Practices in 2011, (Jan. 14 and 15) — provides a comprehensive, evidence-based review of the field’s major clinical topics and explores how key data from recent clinical trials have impacted new therapies and management strategies. Plus, attendees will have the opportunity to examine the latest clinical research from interns, residents and trainees at a poster session during the wine and cheese reception.
- AGA Practice Management Course: From Surviving to Thriving in a New World (Jan. 13 and 14) — offers physicians and practice managers/administrators the essentials for running a successful practice in a demanding health-care environment.
- AGA Hands-on Course: Endoscopy for Barrett’s Esophagus and Associated Neoplasia (Jan. 16) — reviews evidence-based management strategies for patients with esophageal neoplasia and offers hands-on training on the latest endoscopic techniques.
