Even as all aspects of practice have changed due to COVID-19, your need to stay up to date on clinical GI does not stop. Scroll down to view the upcoming VGRs, and click here to view the past VGRs. ACG is committed to your professional education and our goal is to help the GI community embrace #GIhomeschooling at this time.

A More Convenient Schedule Increases Reach of ACG Virtual Grand Rounds
In response to tremendous interest in ACG virtual education at convenient times, and to better meet the needs of practicing clinicians both nationally and internationally, the College offers Virtual Grand Rounds TWICE each Thursday by adding an evening session. Here’s how it works: The faculty will present live at Noon Eastern time and will engage with the audience in Q&A. ACG will then re-broadcast a recording of that day’s lecture at 8:00pm Eastern time, and, when possible, faculty will again join at the end to answer questions from the evening audience. If you miss either session, a recording of the presentation will be available in the ACG Education Universe the following week, allowing you to watch at your convenience.
