Topics include advances in the assessment and treatment of liver disease, gastrointestinal cancers and inflammatory bowel disease, evaluation of chronic cough and “the future of endoscopy.”

The course is sponsored by the Vanderbilt Division of Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. It is co-directed by William Fiske, M.D., MPH, and Eric Sumner, M.D., both assistant professors of Medicine.

Registration fee is $200. Vanderbilt students, residents and fellows will be admitted free.
