Course Overview



This Course Has Been Canceled.


We hope to see you at our next Gastroenterology course, to be held late spring of 2021.

Dear Colleagues:

We regret to inform you that we have made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s course in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

We did not make this decision lightly and had deferred as long as possible in the hopes this outcome could be avoided. Unfortunately, it is now impossible to hold the course in light of guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC); public health officials; the State of Emergency in Massachusetts; along with guidelines prohibiting travel and participation at in-person meetings; and most importantly our responsibility to protect the health, safety and wellbeing of our attendees, faculty, exhibitors, sponsors, and staff. We understand that this is disappointing, but feel that this is the best and only course of action at this time.

If you had previously registered for this course, please note the following:

  1. You will be issued a full refund for your tuition.
  2. If you have made a hotel reservation at the Fairmont Copley Plaza within the course block of rooms via the link provided on our course website, your hotel reservation will automatically be cancelled. 
  3. If you made your hotel reservation outside of the room block (i.e. third party vendor such as, etc.), then you will need to make this cancellation request on your own.

We appreciate your understanding of these unusual and unpredictable circumstances, and sincerely apologize for the inconvenience.

We look forward to seeing you at our next course in Boston.
