Endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) has transformed the endoscopy field in significant ways in the past three decades. EUS is intellectually stimulating, it is technically and cognitively challenging, and it includes an array of proven diagnostic and therapeutic options that gastroenterologists can use to care for their patients. This course will create great value for physicians and health care professionals who are already familiar with EUS as well as those who are just beginning to incorporate EUS into their practice, including low and high-volume centers – keeping in mind that EUS teams also generally include nurses, endoscopy technicians, anesthesia support staff, vendors and pathologists.

Designed for gastroenterologists, advanced endoscopy GI fellows and the aforementioned allied health care professionals, ASGE’s Masterclass EUS will provide participants with an excellent overview of the fundamentals and best practices in EUS. In addition, this course will feature world-renowned experts addressing the business and operational aspects of running a successful EUS practice – as well as the field’s emerging technologies, techniques and trends. If you want to be on the cutting edge of EUS, don’t miss this exceptional opportunity.

This course is supported, in part, by Boston Scientific Corporation, FujiFilm Healthcare Americas Corporation, Olympus Corporation of the Americas and PENTAX Medical.
