Congratulations to Dr. Antony Kalloo in the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology on the celebration of the 40th Anniversary Topics in Gastroenterology and Hepato-Biliary Update Conference. This year’s conference will take place November 13 – 16, 2014! This special 40th Anniversary Program will begin Thursday evening, November 13, 2014 with a celebratory dinner in the new state-of-the-art Johns Hopkins Hospital, Sheik-Zayed Conference Center and continue through November 16, 2014 in the Johns Hopkins Thomas B. Turner building.
This activity will provide an update and comprehensive overview of a wide range of topics of interest to the practicing gastroenterologist, surgeon, family physician and internist. The understanding of the pathophysiology, natural history and treatment of diseases of the digestive tract and liver is progressing at a rapid pace. This course will provide practitioners who care for patients with digestive diseases with an in-depth knowledge of recent, cutting-edge advancements in Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Moreover, practitioners will be informed about new therapies and treatments on the horizon in order to be prepared to inform patients and field their questions.
An important feature of this course is its case panel discussions. One of our frequent challenges is making practical use of knowledge. Therefore, the course format will include case presentation discussion sessions with a multidisciplinary panel of experts from medical, endoscopic and surgical disciplines, discussing diagnostic and management controversies. Among areas of focus for these panels will be inflammatory bowel disease, esophageal disorders, gastrointestinal neoplasia, motility and liver disease, including liver transplantation. During the lunchtime session, attendees will have the opportunity to discuss controversies specific to their personal practices with course faculty.
Another key component of the course is the opportunity for attendees to witness videotaped endoscopic cases from The Johns Hopkins Hospital. These endoscopic case demonstrations will allow the audience to interact directly with the faculty who performed the procedures.
