  • Overview

    In order to acquire competency in ERCP it is essential not only to master the use of a duodenoscope and cannulate the appropriate duct, but also to interpret a cholangiogram and be proficient in the various therapeutic techniques. Other essential skills, often overlooked include the detailed knowledge of the indications, risks, limitations, and measures to prevent some potentially life-threatening complications.


    ERCP courses, which provide simultaneously the state-of-the-art essentials of the technique and offer the opportunity for hands-on training, are scarce worldwide.


    During this 2 days course, trainees and junior GI specialists will have the opportunity to practice and refine essential ERCP skills in specialized exclusive models supervised by our faculty, on an intensive hands-on experience. Concise up-to-date reviews regarding ERCP will be provided. Live demonstrations will occur in the morning of the first day, with step-by-step discussions of alternative actions that will allow close interaction with the faculty.
