Program Highlights

Review Guidelines

A variety of AGA resources will be incorporated into this year’s course. This will help you distill guidelines, clinical research articles and emerging technology into everyday practice.

Learn Current Innovations

AGA’s Postgraduate Course provides a comprehensive look at the latest medical, surgical and technological advances over the past 12 months. This course aims to keep you up to date in a field that is rapidly changing.

Discover Advances in Science

A diverse faculty will guide you through the future of GI during a Hot Topics session, then assess current approaches to treating five other disease states — disorders of the gut and upper GI tract, functional GI disorders, liver and pancreatic biliary disease, inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD) and hepatitis.

Make Changes to Your Practice

Deliver optimal care of patients based on what you learn. Each presenter will turn abstract ideas into concrete action items that you can immediately implement in your practice. An abstract of each presentation with key points and references will be compiled and distributed with the eSyllabus.
