3rd Upper GI Endoscopy Education & Training Day - Wednesday 26th June 2024

Registration, Coffee & Welcome

07:30 - 08:30

This first day has been specially designed for trainees, endoscopy fellows, junior doctors, nurse endoscopists and anyone starting their career in endoscopy. Nevertheless, it is of course open to anyone with interest in Upper GI Endoscopy; including experienced endoscopy consultants looking for some refreshment of their diagnostic skills. We are covering all basics aspects of the endoscopic diagnosis of early neoplasia in the Upper GI tract, including the use of advanced imaging techniques, lesion recognition and decision making process before considering endoscopic treatment. With this training day, we aim to increase the awareness of diagnosing gastro-oesophageal malignancies at an early stage and the importance of performing high quality Upper GI Endoscopy to improve the diagnosis of early Upper GI neoplasia.
