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.
Join colleagues in Las Vegas for ACG’s 1-Day Hepatology School and weekend Western Regional Postgraduate Course.
ACG’s newly revamped Hepatology School, to be held on Friday, January 27, is a day-long interactive program that provides comprehensive education for GI clinicians in the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of liver disease states. This program is designed to better enable clinical gastroenterologists and their advanced practice provider colleagues to triage, treat, and refer patients more efficiently.
Led by Course Directors Swapna Gayam, MD, FACG, and V. Raman Muthusamy, MD, MAS, FACG, the Western Regional Postgraduate Course, offered on Saturday and Sunday, January 28-29, will explore areas the gastroenterologist often faces in clinical practice and addresses management updates in a variety of gastrointestinal and hepatic areas. During this course, multiple topic areas will be covered including esophagus, pancreaticobiliary, common office consults, colon/IBD, liver, bariatric endoscopy, as well as an endoscopic video forum. The structure of the program includes a mix of didactic presentations delivered by expert faculty, case presentations, and significant question and answer opportunities.
Attendees will have the opportunity to participate in Hands-on Workshop sessions at no additional charge. These sessions focus on specific endoscopic procedures and offer participants a chance to gain tactile experience using a variety of tools and techniques. Faculty will demonstrate a device and/or technique, and attendees will have the opportunity to practice. While the hands-on workshop sessions do not offer CME, they are a valuable learning experience, and give attendees the chance to interact with the experts. Hands-on workshops will be concurrent with the general sessions on Saturday afternoon. There are limited spaces available.
Both programs will take place at world-famous Caesars Palace which offers luxurious accommodations, over a dozen restaurants, shopping, and exciting casino action. The venue is centrally located on the Las Vegas Strip, where additional dining and entertainment options are a short walk away. Take a long weekend and earn CME and MOC while enjoying a little rest and relaxation after a busy holiday season.
