At the annual AGA course Principles of Gastroenterology for the Nurse Practitioner (NP) and Physician Assistant (PA), which takes place Aug. 14 to 16 in Chicago, IL, faculty will use practical, case-based examples to demonstrate topics. This approach to enhancing clinical skill sets has proven to be an effective educational tool, with learners continually reporting a deeper level of understanding and retention.

  • IBD and IBS.
