5th Annual Acing the GI Board Exam: The Ultimate Crunch-Time Course

September 14, 2019 - September 15, 2019

The course will follow the blueprint developed by ABIM. Each content category – esophagus, stomach/duodenum, liver, biliary tract, pancreas, small intestine and colon – will explore anatomy, development, function/physiology; symptoms/clinical presentation; and the diseases and disorders in each. In collaboration with the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG), participants will have the option of earning 10 MOC points with successful completion of the ACG’s Self-Assessment modules. A distinguishing feature of this conference is the fact that the course content is delivered over the course of only a day and half. The course directors for this conference recognized that long and detailed discussions that are not directly relevant to board and re-certification exams should be eliminated. Conversely, many board review manuals provide lists and bullet points that lack sufficient background and context. To address the needs of busy gastroenterologists, this conference will present high-yield information in the most rational, relevant, and contextually appropriate format. This is a time-tested approach that had led to wide dissemination and success of the speakers’ own textbook series, which will serve as a blueprint for this new educational offering.

This course also serves as an intense review of gastroenterology and hepatology to enhance the clinical practice of all GI providers.
