Hands-On Training

The ultimate training tool!

ESGE Days 2023 hands-on training sessions are designed to provide participants with the opportunity to put what they learn during lectures into practice. Available only to delegates at the on-site congress in Dublin, these small group, expert-led sessions will cover a variety of topics which are encountered during daily practice.

To maximize contact between tutors and participants, the group sizes are strictly limited. Courses can only be booked in conjunction with the hybrid package. Participants may book more than one course - please ensure that course bookings do not overlap.

New for 2023:

We are planning to provide advanced training sessions on the following topics:

  • Barrett's RFA
  • Cholangioscopy (targeted biopsy)
  • Cholangioscopy (EHL)
  • EUS-guided cyst drainage
  • EUS-guided biliary drainage
  • EUS-guided portal pressure measurement and EUS- guided liver biopsy
  • Spiral enteroscopy
