On Friday, April 5, 2019, registrants will have the option of attending an endoscopy hands-on module in the  state-of-the-art MISTIC lab of The Johns Hopkins Hospital. Each module is limited to 24 participants. Sessions will be held on explants and training models with training provided by national and international expert endoscopists. Pre-registration is required (has fee) and space is limited. There will be two options (morning and afternoon) with a slightly different focus. Both modules will include endoscopic suturing, endoscopic submucosal dissection and interventional EUS. Each participant will rotate through each station  (40 minutes each) with a maximum of four participants 
per station. Please register early, as these limited sessions will fll up quickly. 

Post activity, an online evaluation will be available to attendees to evaluate the activity and individual presentations and to identify future educational needs. Upon completion of the evaluation, the learner must attest to the number of hours in attendance. Credits earned will be added to the learner’s transcript and immediately available for print. The last day to access the evaluation and attest to your credits is May 20, 2019.

An outcome survey will be sent to all physician attendees within two months post activity to assist us in determining what impact this activity had on the learner’s practice.
