ASGE Annual GI Advanced Practice Provider Course (On-Demand) | July 2021
Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) are integral members of the gastroenterology clinical team in delivering high-quality and efficient care to patients. This two-day course provides education for GI APPs at all levels of practice and experience.

Day one focuses on topics for APPs that are new or returning to GI to help them navigate their role in their respective practices. Day two explores more advanced concepts in GI endoscopy and case-based studies including pancreatic disease, dysphagia, GI bleeding, IBD, and GI emergencies. See mthe learning objectives of each day below.

This course is envisioned to become a critical resource for practices that want quality GI education for APPs, to create an effective APP/physician collaboration and successfully and smoothly integrate new APPs into their GI team.
