NEW VENUE IN 2023! Welcome to 40th GEEW - Faculty of Medicine, Erasme Campus, Brussels

June 25 - 27, 2023

It is with great pleasure that we invite you to the 40th GEEW from June 25 to June 27, 2023, combining live demonstrations with a direct interaction between the participants, the moderators and the experts performing procedures. NEW VENUE: for its 40th Anniversary, GEEW moves to a brand new Auditorium located next to the Erasme Hospital, on the Faculty of Medicine Campus, Building W. The proximity of the venue with the hospital will allow even more interactivity between invited experts, local team and participants.

The meeting will start on Sunday, June 25, 2023 with “how I do it “ sessions focused on technical tricks from experts and with hands-on training sessions on various techniques (on special registration, seats being limited). Live demonstrations of digestive endoscopy procedures will be retransmitted from Erasme Hospital on Monday and Tuesday, June 26 and 27, 2023.

The learning objectives of the course will be:

  1. Evaluation of established and most recent endoscopy techniques, assessing their clinical utility in a multidisciplinary setting
  2. Description of pre-therapeutic assessment and post-treatment follow-up, as well as pathology results review
  3. Detailed technical teaching of various procedures
  4. Providing scientific appraisal of technologies, evidence-based, with comparison with other approaches
  5. Recognition of the role of endoscopy in digestive diseases and its interaction with gastroenterology, surgery, oncology, radiology and transplantation
  6. Teaching on prevention and treatment of adverse events

The scientific programme also offers State-of-the-Art lectures and Questions and Answers sessions. The meeting will also be streamed live for those who can not join us in Brussels. All sessions will remain available for post-review for 1 month after the congress.

40th GEEW has been granted 17 CME credits by the European Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (EACCME).

We are looking forward to welcoming you, hopefully in person in Brussels!
