Get the most out of the UEG online programme – Tailor it to your interests! 
In addition to screening through the programme we highly recommend using the topics as your guidance which you can find in the menu on the left-hand side in the online programme! These topics feature organs, diseases as well as specialty interests such as the Mechanisms & Personalised Medicine. It contains sessions that focus on important research and clinical topics in gastroenterology: from understanding the mechanisms of fibrogenesis in HPB to the microbiome – tackled from different perspectives - and the role of technology and precision medicine in advancing digestive oncology and IBD treatment.


Interdisciplinary sessions cover new approaches to diagnosis and treatment, and place major emphasis on innovative, technical advances in the non-invasive management of gastrointestinal and hepatic disorders and translational/basic science. This includes state-of-the-art lectures on the subjects. UEG Week 2024 will also feature various topic highlights such as:

  • The 3 Crash Courses allow clinicians to get an update on a topic of their daily clinical routine. 
  • Mistakes in...: The Mistakes in... sessions provide professionals with specialist tips and know-how beyond textbook knowledge. The presentations focus on common errors and infrequent mistakes that have a high clinical impact on patients and daily clinical practice.
  • Never waste a good disaster sessions feature tandem talks about possibly averted mistakes and wrong decisions during daily clinical practice. Included topics are approached from different angles, with outstanding experts and memorable confessions. 
  • 3 sessions focusing on disease primers are another offer stressing the importance of translational work for both basic scientists and clinicians. 
  • Advances in Clinical GI & Hepatology: Our clinically oriented one-day symposium within the meeting, focusing on Metabolic disorders this year.
