Taking place for the 27th time, UEG Week is the largest and most prestigious GI meeting in Europe and is now a global congress. UEG Week attracts around 14,000 participants each year, from around the world.
For all delegates of the UEG Week whose focus is on endoscopy the ESGE Learning Area is without a doubt the first and best place to meet and mingle. Again this year, accomplished doctors and nurses will volunteer their time and expertise to support the ESGE mission: to promote good endoscopy, to show the basics as well as the latest developments, to support training and to offer small-group teaching activities to everyone with a real interest in the how and why of current endoscopy. The ESGE Learning Area provides a unique and ideal platform for live encounter and interaction among aspiring endoscopists and renowned experts in the field. Please come and be a part of it!
Test your skills and experience the latest technology. The 90-minute training sessions in the Hands-on Theatre offer unique access to state of the art endoscopic equipment and accessories. Participants will have the opportunity to look, learn, ask questions and perform techniques themselves under personal doctor and nurse tutoring. In cooperation with ESGENA, the aim of this activity is to increase the awareness of diagnostic and therapeutic techniques and to offer delegates the possibility of checking their skills. Basic and advanced training are offered.
As last year in Vienna, hands-on training sessions on basic and common procedures are extended to Monday. This gives everyone more time and opportunity to test their skills and ask the experts.
There is limited availability of tickets for the training sessions from Saturday to Monday. To maintain a high standard of teaching each workstation is limited to a maximum of eight participants (EMR tables: six). Please note that pre-registration will be possible online via the ESGE website a few weeks before UEG week. ESGE members will have the possibility to pre-register before non-members.
Last-minute vacancies will be filled on-site. Be sure to come to the registration desk in the ESGE Learning Area well in advance of your proposed session start time.
Endoscopic training on Simbionix GI Simulators is available on a walk-in basis from Monday on and throughout the conference week, likewise the hands-on sessions on Tuesday and Wednesday can be attended without prior registration.
The ESGE eLearning Stations offer UEG Week delegates the opportunity to view the latest training material on video screens with headphone sound transmission.
The ESGE teaching units presented at the Learning Area are otherwise only available to ESGE members via the ESGE website. If you are not already a member of ESGE, this is your chance to catch a glimpse of one of the many benefits ESGE provides when you join.
In the ESGE Lecture Theatre highly qualified and well-known endoscopists have been invited to present their views and experience with current endoscopic procedures and techniques. Their counterparts in discussion are equally well known, in several cases more senior specialists whose role it is to moderate the talk and perhaps critically question the case at hand. The number of participants is limited to 70 in order to ensure a small-forum atmosphere where active participation is possible.
Stay tuned for the programme of the ESGE Lecture Theatre!
