If you have a passion for either of these areas, watch this video and join us for a special DDW session for physician innovators.

As Sidhartha Sinha, MD, explains in the video below, if you are interested in medical innovation, you need to get involved early. This way, you have the advantage of learning from others to move your idea forward to ultimately impact patient care.

If you have an interest in medical innovation, make sure to attend the AGA Center for GI Innovation and Technology-sponsored session at Digestive Disease Week® (DDW) 2016: “Practical Guidelines for the Physician Innovator.” This center-sponsored session will take place Tuesday, May 24, from 4 to 5:30 p.m. PT, in room 28E of the San Diego Convention Center.

This session, which is co-moderated by Dr. Sinha, will cover:

  • Lessons learned from Paul Swain, a serial physician inventor.
  • How to work with industry on getting your ideas to patients.
  • Protecting your IP: key initial steps.

To attend this session, make sure you are registered for DDW 2016
