38th GEEW

June 19 - 22, 2021
Gastroenterology and Endotherapy European Workshop - Interactive Live Streaming Edition


Update on the 38th GEEW

Started in 1983 and held every year in June, this meeting has become established as one of the largest European Workshops in its field, gathering around 400-500 participants coming from 55 to 60 different countries worldwide.

In 2020, it is the first time since its creation that GEEW could not be held due to the Covid-19 pandemic. We missed this annual opportunity to exchange with our audience and Faculties.

38th GEEW was therefore postponed to June 20-22, 2021 but again this year, fundamental problems and uncertainties remain for the coming months as the pandemic is still ongoing in many parts of the world. For this reason, it has been decided to move to an Interactive live streaming edition. Of course this decision was not easy as we are all missing the added value of physical interaction, but we hope this digital edition will fulfill your expectations in terms of continuous medical education.

As you know, the meeting is designed for endoscopists and gastroenterologists but also for physicians in training as well as for nurses and GI assistants. It will include State of the Art lectures, how I do it sessions and as usual live video demonstrations permitting interchanges between faculty and registrants during procedures, using live chat. Live transmission on Monday and Tuesday will be broadcast live from 3 endoscopic suites located at Erasme Hospital and each procedure will be performed by international expert physicians selected for their outstanding teaching capabilities in collaboration with members of the local staff. We already thank our international experts who accepted to travel to Brussels to perform the procedures.

The overall goal of this course is to provide information about current technology and to enhance knowledge in gastroenterology and endotherapy. Moreover, new techniques and new accessories will be demonstrated and discussed with the audience during Q&A.


Register now and save. Early bird until May 31, 2021 midnight.
