Warsaw Live Endoscopy

September 29-30, 2017


Dear colleagues,

Warsaw Live Endoscopy (WLE) is a workshop for endoscopists and endoscopy assitants organized by the Maria Sklodowska-Curie Institute - Oncology Center and the Polish Foundation of Gastroenterology.

On September 29 & 30, 2017, several leading national and international experts will gather together in Warsaw, in a modern Conference Center at the Maria Sklodowska-Curie Institute - Oncology Center, to share their passion for endoscopy and education.

During the WLE we will demonstrate and discuss live digestive endoscopy procedures that either you have never seen before or you perform them daily but you would like to learn expert tricks that make them easier or safer. You will also have chance to share your tricks that are unknown even to the invited faculty. To facilitate active involvement of all the participants we decided to run a majority of sessions in Polish language.

Thanks to exciting programme and adherence to the highest European quality standards for organization of live endoscopy workshops our event is endorsed by the Polish Society of Gastroenterology (www.ptg-e.org.pl), the European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (www.esge.com), and the European Society of Digestive Oncology (www.esdo.eu).

We hope, that thanks to the joint effort of faculty, participants and organizers, the WLE will become a great festival of Polish and European endoscopy.

Welcome to join the WLE!

On behalf of the programme and organizing committee,

Michal F. Kaminski, MD, PhD

Maciej Rupinski, MD, PhD

Jacek Pachlewski, MD, PhD
