What to expect?

We understand that our community has been hit hard by COVID-19, particularly in terms of the lack of educational opportunities. We now answer your call and deliver what has been missing – an impactful update on key components of GI that can be consumed and interacted with from a safe location. 

For the first time ever, UEG introduces a new cutting-edge educational offering - the Virtual Summer School 2020! This live course will allow you to virtually interact with renowned experts from previous Summer School courses and the global GI community in real-time. There will be many opportunities for participants to contribute, raise questions and impact the discussion. 

Participate in our brand-new Trainee Thursdays concept over the course of three weeks and learn via one riveting, case-based session at a time!
