Slovenian Assotiation for Gastroenterology and Hepatology was founded in the year 1967 in Rogaška Slatina. We organize regular biannual professional meetings, as well as many one day special symposias. Every four years we organize Alpe Adria Danube Symposia, which is a regional meeting. From the year 2001 we also organize every four years an International Congress of Gastroenterology and Hepatology. At the 4th Slovenian Association for Gastroenterology and Hepatology (SAGH) Congress that will be held in Ljubljana, Slovenia, from June 8th to 10th 2017 we will host more than 300 paticipants from 17 European countries.
The scientific programme will cover many challenging and changing aspects of gastrointestinal and hepatological diseases from the point of view of diagnosis and treatment. Along with state of the art lectures, many research projects will be presented, too.
On the first day we will organize Postgraduate course fom gastroenterology and hepatology for specialist of Family medicine. On the second day, a Postgraduate Course will be organized in collaboration between EAGEN (European Society for Gastroenterology, Endoscopy and Nutrition), EHMSG (European Helicobacter Microbiota Study Group) and SAGH which will bring you highlights in recent developments on some important gastrointestinal and hepatological diseases.
Endoscopic training on simulators will be made possible with the support of Olympus company, especially for fellows and young clinicians. Annual meetting of Slovenian Society of Gastroenterology and Endoscopy Nurses and Associates will also be a part of our Congress.
The internationally renowned speakers from 15 EU member countries and other European countries testify to the high scientific level of the Congress. The Congress and the Course are organised under the auspices of SAGH, EAGEN and EHMSG.
I’m sure that 4th Congress of SAGH will be not only a high level scientific meetting , but also a place were old friends can come together and a place where many new friendships will be made.
I would like to thank all the lecturers, guests, colleagues and sponsors that contributed to the organization of the 4th SAGH Congress.
