WEO again will join forces with ESGE to organize the third hands-on course at St Paul’s Hospital and Millennium Medical School (SPHMMS) in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. This intensive hands-on training will be held February 10-14, 2020 within the Endoscopy suite at St. Paul´s Hospital and led by co-course directors Robert J. Bailey (Canada), Berhane Redae (Ethiopia) and Lars Aabakken (Norway).

Following the successful launch of this basic endoscopy training in 2018, WEO and ESGE signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with St Paul’s Hospital and Millennium Medical School (SPHMMS) last year to acknowledge the St. Paul´s Hospital GI Unit as the first official WEO/ESGE Training Center in Africa.

Six international trainers will work with small groups participants to ensure ample time for hands-on experience and observation. They will additionally give lectures and address issues relevant to day-to-day practice. Advanced local endoscopists will be invited to observe the course, learn teaching methods, and improve their teaching skills.
