We have been providing education in Gastroenterology for many years through our background in working in a tertiary specialist NHS Hospital alongside organising and participating as expert faculty in numerous Gastroenterology conferences. In particular, as interventional endoscopists, we have been at the forefront of Live Endoscopy courses and Endoscopic education.
Live endoscopy courses have been taking place for over 20 years providing a fantastic resource for practicing endoscopists to learn from the experts in their fields and disseminate good practice. However, we have recognised that very little has changed in how the learning is delivered over this time. As such, at Gastro Learning, we have aimed to modernise and improve the delivery of education at Live Endoscopy events and beyond. We have developed an extensive educational library that is presented to users in an interactive and engaging way to get the most out of their course attendance whilst also helping facilitators deliver great courses.
Since 2018 we have been providing our educational platform at live endoscopy events nationally and internationally, completely changing the way users engage with live endoscopy courses. We have received exceptional feedback. Following the COVID-19 outbreak we all have to rethink the way we deliver not just live courses but all medical education. We have utilised our experience and educational expertise to develop a platform that not only provides the ability to live stream endoscopy from any centre worldwide but also provides an immersive, interactive educational experience.
