Course Description

This one day course focuses on advanced topics in “IBD-ology” from both a Cleveland Clinic and international perspective. Format includes case-based multidisciplinary extended discussions interspersed with didactics. Audience member participation in the discussions is highly encouraged. This event will be held the day prior to ASCRS 2019, and we anticipate a large, international turnout. We have organized a world-class expert faculty team and will review pitfalls and promising new treatments for the management of complex IBD patients. This course offers a chance to ask “everything you ever wanted to know about IBD, but didn’t know who to ask”.
