Education and Training

 

Course attendees in Virginia Mason’s Volney Richmond Auditorium watch Education Director Ian Gan, MD and surgeon Richard Thirlby, MD, perform live cases during DDI's Advanced Therapeutic Endoscopy CME Course on Sept. 7.

 

Learning and teaching are fundamental to the Digestive Disease Institute's Centers of Excellence and multidisciplinary care team. Led by director of education Ian Gan, MD, education initiatives encompass a broad range of activities and aim to engage patients as well as health care professionals in relevant, stimulating education on digestive disease. The Institute's providers share new understandings of digestive disease care — from endoscopic techniques, to new treatment regimens, to research discoveries — with audiences around the world.
