6th Annual Digestive Diseases: New Advances Conference is organized by Global Academy for Medical Education and will be held from Mar 15 - 16, 2019 at The Westin Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America.
The target audience for this medical event is gastroenterologists, hepatologists, primary care physicians, internists, advanced practice nurses, nurses, pharmacists, and physician assistants involved in the diagnosis, evaluation, management, and treatment of patients with digestive diseases. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 13.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits.
The complexity and magnitude of medical advances in the management of digestive diseases make it ever more challenging for clinicians to apply this tremendous amount of information to their practice. This activity will provide learners with a comprehensive overview of the state-of-the art advances in the diagnostic, therapeutic, and preventive modalities of digestive diseases based on the latest evidence, literature, and clinical research. A thorough review of the current treatment landscape is vital to both clinicians and patients who can benefit from the expansion of therapeutic options.
