Fundamental of Gastroenterology will discuss the common gastro-intestinal conditions seen in general practice. The day will be centred around practical sessions allowing you to practice and perfect those techniques commonly utilised in diagnosis and management of GI cases. There will also be some case based discussion to give you a grounding in gastroenterology in general practice.  All the lectures and practical sessions will help you determine the best diagnostic approach driven by evidence-based medicine.
