Endoscopy is an essential tool in the investigation and diagnosis of gastrointestinal and respiratory disease. The key to successful endoscopy is being able to steer the endoscope exactly where you want it to go and to be familiar with normal and abnormal findings.
This two day course will cover the use of endoscopy in clinical cases and will be suitable if you have an endoscope already but fail to use it to its full potential, or if you are planning to buy an endoscope in the near future. The course will focus on theoretical and practical aspects of endoscopy with multiple images, case examples and practical sessions.
