The WEO Hands-on Training Area is open throughout the congress. This teaching activity provides a constant opportunity for delegates to switch between the more passive learning from the big lectures to active training – implementing new techniques and using new models. The stations featured in this area include state-of-the-art models and simulators (hemostatic devices, EMR and ESD devices, and more).
LATEST UPDATE : Due to overwhelming response, all slots for the hands-on training session by WEO have been taken up. However, hands-on training sessions by Boston Scientific, Cantel Medical and Cook Medical are still available on a first come first serve basis. Please refer to the end of this webpage for registration details.
ASIAN NOVEL BIO-IMAGING & INTERVENTION GROUP
