The OESO-Stanford SEMPIRE Multidisciplinary Platform of Esophagology


Training courses

A multidisciplinary, two-day program, left up to the initiative of each Pilot Center.

These training courses are intended for a small number of participants (#5) coming, either from the Pilot Center country, or from any other country of the network.

The fee will be decided by the Center.


The level of the yearly training courses will be determined by each Pilot Center,

at Trainee or Fellow level.


A particular emphasis will be given, among all specialties considered in the training course, to "the" previously agreed upon area as the one characteristic of the Center.


Calendar 2018


You will benefit from the distinctiveness of courses intended to only a small number of participants (upto #5), allowing for particularly efficient interactive exchanges, thus providing high level training.
