Cleveland Clinic Boot Camp for the GI Boards

Date: September 16-19, 2016
Locations: Las Vegas, NV

This course provides an intensive review of gastroenterology and hepatology through the lens of successful test-taking. It is targeted for candidates preparing for both initial certification and maintenance of recertification AND for those in clinical practice who want a high-paced intensive review of the field.

Taking this board review will allow you to gain an in-depth knowledge of gastrointestinal conditions that are commonly seen in practice, as well as rare but “classic” clinical vignettes that are tested during board type exams. The boards also test physicians on their awareness of current guidelines and recent advances in all aspects of gastroenterology and hepatology. To meet these high standards required to pass the boards, we have put together this intensive review course which brings outstanding educators from Cleveland Clinic and other leading institutions.
