It is with great pleasure that EAGEN and ESGE announce an advanced continuation course in live porcine hands-on ESD and EMR training in the skillslab of the Erasmus School of Endoscopy in Rotterdam in the Netherlands.

ESD and EMR techniques are increasingly practiced in Europe. We have developed a basic training course that has been organized successfully now for the last 4 years. There is a growing need for advanced training to a higher level of expertise for an increasing group of endoscopists. To fulfil this need we will start organizing a continuation course to take training to the next level.

This workshop is intended for experienced endoscopists who have already participated in a previous live animal workshop on EMR and ESD and perhaps have limited experience in human ESD and wish to pursue their career in this field.

The focus of this workshop will be mainly hands-on training on a higher level than the basic training courses and participants will be actively participating in setting learning objectives and subject to assessment of acquired skills.

We hope that this unique workshop will serve the need for advanced training in this exciting and developing area of interventional endoscopy and look forward to welcome you in Rotterdam!
