March 19-22, 2020
Hyatt Regency, Orange County, California

We are again hosting a world class faculty of GIs and Surgeons. We will have live GI and Surgery broadcasts, additional time at the end of each session for discussion, scientific session (we had an incredible response to abstract submission) and down time for socializing and networking. Our goal is to take what is in the literature and discuss how to apply that to every day practice.

17 CME/ABS MOC credits available.

There will be a hands on session Sunday March 22, 2020 from 8am until noon. Look for information when you register for the meeting. Registration is $150. Transportation to CDDC and breakfast provided.

The hands-on training session will be hosted in the newly renovated state-of-the art UCI Health H.H. Chao Comprehensive Digestive Disease Center (CDDC) under the direction of our AFS board member, Dr. Ken Chang. This venue will provide a unique opportunity to receive intensive training in multiple foregut endoscopic and laparoscopic procedures and devices. The 3-story Center has 10 large procedure rooms, giving us up to 20 endoscopy/laparoscopy stations for an in-depth experience over the 4 hours. Endoscopic foregut procedures such as Endomicroscopy, VLE, mucosal ablation (RFA, Cryotherapy, hybrid APC) EMR, ESD, clipping, suturing, stenting, radiofrequency and trans-oral incisionless fundoplication for GERD, are all slated for this training, as well as laparoscopic and robotic techniques. Our AFS board and faculty will also be present to share their experience and network with you. We are very excited to offer this unique opportunity to our AFS community!
