Spring Postgraduate Course Focuses on Cutting-Edge Clinical Advances

April 24, 2014

Don't miss your chance to learn the latest, cutting-edge advances to treating common GI conditions. There's still time to register for this course, held in conjunction with DDW® 2014 in Chicago, IL.

There's still time to register for the 2014 AGA Spring Postgraduate Course, Best Practices at the Bedside: Critical Thinking for Common Conditions, to be held May 3 and 4 in conjunction with DDW®.

This 1.5-day course is designed to be one of the most practical offerings at DDW and will focus on the latest, cutting-edge advances that directly affect patient care. You will learn, and take home, practical approaches to functional bowel problems, assessment and treatment of esophageal diseases, and assessment and management of fatty liver disease, sleep disorders and GI problems, and treatment options for complex colon polyps.

“It is important to know where the field is going, but we also want our colleagues to finish this program and be able to translate what they learn into something that will affect the way they take care of a patient the next Monday morning,” explained course director David T. Rubin, MD.

View the brochure to read about course faculty, who are some of the world's top experts in the field. If you are already registered for DDW 2014, but would like to add this course, simply log in to the DDW resource center to update.

This course is currently pending approval for up to 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™ and 10 American Board of Internal Medicine Maintenance of Certification points. This year, attendees can also participate in an interactive question and answer session using smartphones.
