The major teaching advantage of this Workshop in comparison with videotapes or lectures is that it offers the audience the possibility of watching the experts perform procedures in real time, not only demonstrating the best technique but also, in some instances, having difficulties. Live demonstrations offer the possibility to teach how experts solve these difficulties as well as to comment about the limits of endoscopy.
Nursing StaffExperienced nursing staff is also mandatory for succeeding in endoscopy and endotherapy procedures. To encourage the participation of the nurses, we offer them a very low fee as well as a combined fee if they decide to come together with a physician.
Starting in 2019, the format of the meeting has been revised, taking into account the difficulties for many of you to spend 3 full days out of your daily practice. Therefore the meeting will concentrate on 2 days of live demonstrations (on Monday and Tuesday, June 17 and 18, 2019). On Sunday afternoon, we will propose to those interested in hands-on training 2 sessions with 4 stations on ERCP and EUS techniques. Participants will be limited to 8 per station.
We also propose to the Industry to organise a satellite symposium on Sunday, end of the afternoon.
