UEG Week Barcelona 2015 – the place to be for clinicians and researchers

UEG Week is the premier platform for researchers around the world to submit and present their latest findings. The UEG Week programme is carefully crafted each year by the Scientific Committee and encompasses 50% invited talks and 50% oral abstract presentations. To further support the quality of submissions UEG offers a number of abstract related awards, most notably our Top Abstract Prizes: The 5 best abstracts submitted will be awarded prestigious prizes of 10,000 Euros each. To find out more about UEG Week Awards visit https://www.ueg.eu/awards-grants/ueg-week-awards/ top-abstract-prize/. Some of the programme highlights in Barcelona will be the UEG Week Hotspot, where the most controversial sessions, hottest debates and interactive abstract discussions will take place. We will also introduce brand new symposia such as ‘‘From guidelines to clinical practice’’ adding to our popular ‘‘Advances in clinical gastroenterology & hepatology’’ which features scientific breakthroughs on viral hepatitis in 2015. Poster Champ Sessions run at the E-Poster Terminals in the poster exhibition whereas Posters in the Spotlight sessions will highlight cutting edge research topics in the E-Poster Lounge.

With UEG Week 2014, we have introduced a rolling curriculum: If you attend three years in a row you have got all major updates in GI & hepatology and will be perfectly prepared for your professional career! This curriculum follows recommendations given in the EBGH Blue Book. Further innovations are: . The curriculum goes into its 2nd year. Delegates who attend regularly receive teaching on recent developments in all the main topics in gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy, surgery, imaging and other diagnostic modalities within a three-year cycle. . A greater mix of teaching methods is employed: In addition to popular video cases sessions, audience voting and state-of-the-art lectures, clinical case based sessions involve small group, case-based teaching with increased opportunities for discussion and debate. . Delegates attending the curriculum three years in a row will receive a certificate confirming the successful participation. Participants can select the sessions they wish to attend according to their needs and interests. They will also get online access to a summary of each presentation held during the PGT of UEG Week including key facts and important take home messages.

Join the PGT 3-year curriculum! The UEG Week Postgraduate Teaching comprises two days of world-class Continuing Medical Education for gastroenterologists in training and in practice. It also offers established GI physicians and general practitioners profound updates of latest developments in GI and hepatology topics without having to register for the full congress.
