Dear colleagues

We would like to welcome you to our eighth hands-on training in advanced colonic EMR in Leuven. In the era of colorectal cancer screening in Europe, there is an increasing demand of colonic EMR. This is a challenge to our daily endoscopy practice, on the one hand to select the correct patients for this treatment and on the other hand to achieve the technical skills to perform a high quality treatment.

With this background, we are very pleased to invite you to the workshop on 22 and 23 August 2023 with a strong emphasis on hands-on training and one-on-one feedback from experts. On Tuesday morning we start the workshop with state-of-the-art theoretical lectures on indications and technical tips and tricks. The knowledge will then be put into practice during the hands-on training on animal models and living animals. The aim is to keep the course as practical as possible and to spend a lot of time on the achievement of hands-on experience with one-on-one training and teaching by experts in the field.

The organising committee with Raf Bisschops and Ingrid Demedts and the guest faculty with Monika Ferlitsch (Vienna, Austria), Liseth Rivero Sanchez (Barcelona, Spain) and David Tate (Ghent, Belgium) looks forward to welcoming you in Leuven.
