2021 GI Board Review and Best Practices Course: Pre-Recorded Lectures

The William M. Steinberg Board Review in Gastroenterology and Best Practices Course is designed for fellows, and post- fellowship physicians preparing to take their Certifying or Recertifying board exam and/ or for those who desire a comprehensive review and current update of gastroenterology. In addition, nurse practitioners and physician assistants working in a GI practice will find this course appropriate for their educational needs. 
 
A faculty of expert clinicians from around the country will emphasize up-to-date information (including current national GI/hepatology society guidelines) supplemented with board –type questions. Audience participation is encouraged with the use of our new Audience Response System (ARS). The review will include information on the diagnosis and management of disorders of the esophagus, stomach, small and large intestine, pancreas, biliary tree and liver.
 
The course is offered via live webcast (all lectures are archived after the course for re-review) or via purchase of our video or audio products.
