clinical information on timely topics in gastroenterology. As an ACG member, you can attend the three-day Annual Meeting for free – there
is no registration fee. Choose from 11 symposia, multiple networking events, and see the latest advances in technology and therapeutics
from exhibitors from around the globe. Additional breakfast sessions, 17 in total, will be offered for a nominal fee. Register today!
Be sure to visit poster presentations in the Exhibit Hall on Sunday, October 19th beginning at 3:30 pm, and enjoy the Exhibit Hall Opening

Program Description
Returning this year is the Endoscopy Video Forum, “Live
from Philly! The 2nd Annual Endoscopy Video Forum.” The
Forum will feature the best video presentations submitted
from colleagues from across the U.S. and around the world.
Submitted during ACG’s Call for Abstracts and peer-reviewed
and selected for presentation, the cases will feature endoscopy
techniques, challenging or unique cases, and cases in the area
of GI endoscopy. During the session, the audience, along with
the Moderators, will vote to select the best video of ACG 2014.
The field of gastroenterology and hepatology continues to
see advancements in multiple areas relating to diagnostic
measures, therapeutic options and technology. In order to
provide appropriate and top-quality patient care, the clinician is
challenged to stay abreast of the changes and advancements
affecting the management of many gastrointestinal and liver
disease states. Throughout the three-day Annual Meeting, you
will be exposed to updates in a variety of topics, including
biologic therapy in IBD, hepatitis C, acute and chronic
pancreatitis, IBS, colonoscopy, the refractory esophageal patient,
case studies in IBD management, the inpatient hepatology
consult, the human microbiome, and more.
The Annual Scientific Meeting program is designed primarily
for physicians in gastroenterology and hepatology, as well as
physician assistants, nurse practitioners and other advanced
practice healthcare professionals interested in the latest
information on state-of-the-art treatment of these illnesses.
Eleven scientific plenary symposia will allow attendees to
hear lecture presentations from experts and to participate in
interactive question and answer sessions with the faculty. In
addition, 17 optional scientific breakfast sessions will be offered,
where a smaller setting allows for heightened interaction with the
speakers and greater audience involvement.
Accreditation
The American College of Gastroenterology is accredited by
the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education
to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
Many sessions will use expert panel discussions in debate and
case-based formats.
The American College of Gastroenterology designates this live
activity for a maximum of 16.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Creditsв„ў.
Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the
extent of their participation in the activity.
