39th GEEW

June 18 - 21, 2022
Gastroenterology and Endotherapy European Workshop - Brussels - June 19-21, 2022


Update on the 39th 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 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 and held only virtually as the pandemic was still ongoing in many parts of the world, making international travels still very challenging. 

In 2022, 39th GEEW will be organised as an hybrid event, from Sunday, June 19 to Tuesday, June 21. We hope many of you will decide to join us in Brussels and enjoy the added value of physical interaction with peers, with our local team and industrial partners.

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:

- on Sunday, "How I do it sessions" by international experts and hands-on training sessions on various techniques (initiation and advanced levels).

- on Monday and Tuesday, state of the Art lectures and live video demonstrations from 3 endoscopy suites located at Erasme Hospital, permitting interchanges between faculty and registrants during procedures performed by international expert physicians selected for their outstanding teaching capabilities, in collaboration with members of the local staff.

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.

REGISTRATION is now open ! .
