Virtual Educational Channel
OESO and the OESO-SEMPIRE Platform of Excellence in Esophagology
continue to be a trail blazer
in all fields of Esophagology.
A new model of Education has come forward
with the OESO-SEMPIRE Virtual Educational Channel.
Indeed, going beyond the traditional series of presentations one after the other,
the clinical case of a patient becomes the focal point of interest: it becomes
the starting point of a two hour intense educational interaction between top experts,
punctuated by comments and questions by a worldwide floor
