Course Description:

This 2½-day course will be a general overview of Pediatric GI and will address the new American Board of Pediatrics content specifications for pediatric GI. The subject content of this course as well as supplemental educational material will be placed on the NASPGHAN website (free for participants of the course). We are hopeful that attendees will gain a great repository of basic knowledge for general GI practice that will be able to be accessed whenever needed. Between the 2½-day course and the website, we plan to cover ALL of the topics required for the new pediatric GI board (luminal, liver and nutrition). Finally, we will also provide a 1-hour seminar on “How to obtain MOC Part 4 credit”. CME and Part 2 MOC credit will be available.

The course will be structured as follows:

There will be 18 speakers each presenting 3 different topics. Each 3 topic session will occur for one hour and will be followed by a 10-minute Q&A session. On 2 mornings there will be one-hour breakfast sessions based on clinical cases. We have excellent faculty for this course that includes:

Steven Erdman MD Maria Mascarenhas MD
Douglas Fishman MD Jean Molleston, MD
Melanie Greifer MD Samuel Nurko MD
Stefano Guandalini MD David Piccoli MD
Sohail Husain MD Rachel Rosen MD
