About the course

This course has been developed to address an area of knowledge and non-technical skills that is not currently covered in undergraduate teaching curriculums as well as in early years of training. This is a new two-day course with interactive discussion of common GI conditions in the context of applied basic sciences, basic explanation and videos of relevant surgical procedures, followed by MCQ style questions after each topic. There will be also a small group practice on case scenarios to stimulate problem based learning and interactive discussion with peers followed by feedback from the tutor. Additionally, there will be interactive virtual clinical case which includes choosing the appropriate treatment option in a complex scenario.
