Traveling for Care?
Whether you're crossing the country or the globe, we make it easy to access world-class care at Johns Hopkins.
The 15th Annual Gastroenterology and Hepatology: Viva la Vida will provide, through formal lectures, questions and answer sessions as well as audience interactive systems, including interactive endoscopic cases from The Johns Hopkins Hospital, presentations of various gastrointestinal and liver disorders that will be of interest to practitioners in the field. This year, the conference will focus on common clinical challenges faced by practitioners with a special session on “A Day in the Life of Your Clinic”, which will highlight common clinical dilemmas faced by the practitioner. Course attendees will be updated in a series of symposia to include modern approaches with patients with IBD, fatty liver disease, commonly known as NAFLD, pancreatitis, sphincter dysfunction and hot new and emerging topics including eosinophilic esophagitis, intestinal perforations, submucosal endoscopy and recent advances in Hepatitis C treatment.
After attending this activity, the participant will demonstrate the ability to:
Describe recent advances in inflammatory bowel disease including the role of surgery and the detection of cancer in these patients.
