This on-demand course will provide advanced GI fellows and endosonographers with a comprehensive overview of how therapeutic endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) is used to care for patients who have gastrointestinal and non-gastrointestinal disorders. It will cover everything from the origins of the EUS to discussing and demonstrating the fine points of the procedure to hands-on practice. Renowned faculty will address the procedure's equipment, technical aspects, diagnostic utility, and therapeutic uses. The didactic portion of this course will include case discussions and debates, while the bio-skills lab portion will feature animate models that participants will be able to use to demonstrate the EUS procedures that are encountered in everyday practice - as well as addressing some new and advanced EUS applications.
