Dear colleagues & friends,
It is an honor and a pleasure to invite you to come to the 13th edition of Amsterdam Live Endoscopy on Monday and Tuesday 16 & 17 December 2019. Amsterdam Live Endoscopy has become one of the premier live-endoscopy meetings in Europe with around 500 participants each year. We focus on demonstrating innovative techniques as well as teaching the best way to perform standard and advanced interventions in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Our faculty is selected not only on their technical skills but also on their educational skills. The program consists of 8 sessions of live endoscopy alternated with Clinical Update Sessions as well as brief presentations on recent European guidelines. In order protect our patients’ best interest we follow the guidelines of the ESGE.
Our 2019 guest faculty will consist of: Marianna Arvanitakis (Brussels, Belgium), Raf Bisschops (Leuven, Belgium), Greg Ginsberg (Philadelphia, USA), Brian Saunders (London, UK), Frank Vleggaar (Utrecht, the Netherlands) and Hironori Yamamoto (Tochigi, Japan). Our local faculty is well known around the world and includes Jacques Bergman, Evelien Dekker, Jeanin van Hooft and many others.
The entire Amsterdam faculty, fellows and nursing staff of Amsterdam UMC look forward to welcoming you in Amsterdam. We will do the best we can to make your visit highly educational as well as pleasant. Our aim is that you will go home after the meeting with reinforced knowledge of the evidence-based endoscopic techniques that we all practice daily in our hospitals and some new impressions on the future of gastrointestinal endoscopy.
We hope to see you in Amsterdam on 16 & 17 December, 2019.
Paul Fockens & Jacques Bergman, course directors
