Postgraduate Course

The new ESGE Days Postgraduate Course (PGC) is a series of on demand, special educational sessions dedicated to practicing professionals. The PGC is aimed at trainees as well as trained gastroenterologists of all levels. This year we present year one of the two-year curriculum which is divided into four main categories - Upper GI, Lower GI, ERCP and EUS - each with four modules.

This year the PGC is presented in a new, fully augmented way developed for maximum learning potential.

  • Which questions would you like to pose? What needs further clarification? Would case studies or extra data help?

Make a note of the date and time of the live PGC meet the expert session, relevant for the module, at ESGE Days.


On site at ESGE Days attend the PGC meet the expert sessions, where the presenters from your module will be available. In these lively, informal, early morning meetings, the answers to your questions will drive the discussion.

  • Deep dive into the topics that matter to you. Utilize the experts' experience to fill any knowledge gaps you have. Explore additional cases that bring the subject to life

Why not add a hands-on training session to complete your augmented learning experience?


Once the live event is complete, review the modules at home, as well as the sessions that took place on site during our two month on-demand period, (until June 30, 2023).
