ACG/LGS Regional Postgraduate Course: 11.5 CME Credits, 11.5 MOC Credits

Certification of Covid-19 Vaccination:

To support safely and responsibly convening at ACG’s educational programs, the College’s Board of Trustees voted that the COVID-19 vaccination be required of attendees and exhibitors on-site at our Regional Courses, until further notice. While the College sees a reasonable likelihood that we can convene safely in the current environment, ACG cannot guarantee that no one will be exposed to COVID-19. ACG will continue to monitor the highly fluid situation and will make all necessary and appropriate adjustments as our conferences approach. All attendees will be required to attest to the following statement at the time of registration:

I attest that I will be fully vaccinated for COVID-19, based on the CDC guidelines at the time of the course.

Course Description:

Mark Your Calendar for the ACG/LGS Regional Postgraduate Course, February 24-26, 2023, at the Hilton New Orleans Riverside Hotel, and Join Colleagues in the “Big Easy.”

Join your colleagues at one of the fastest growing gastroenterology learning weekends in the country! Outstanding faculty in a collegial setting produce a conference that delivers the opportunity to learn, interact, and network with GI thought leaders and colleagues from around the nation. Nationally-recognized expert faculty will provide insight and a deeper understanding into these areas through a combination of didactic presentations and interactive discussions, including opportunities for one-on-one interaction with speakers. Attendees will leave the program ready to immediately implement the knowledge gained to improve their clinical practice. This program is designed for gastroenterologists, gastroenterology trainees, primary care physicians, nurses, physician assistants, and nurse practitioners interested in the latest information on diagnostic GI and state-of-the-art treatment of GI illnesses.

Guests at the spacious and centrally-located Hilton New Orleans Riverside will enjoy stunning views of both the Mississippi River and the city. Step outside the hotel and explore the Riverwalk, New Orleans Cruise Port, or nearby Harrah’s Casino. Ride the historic New Orleans streetcar lines for a unique and fun way to see the city, or enjoy a leisurely riverboat cruise at sunset.
