Virtual Educational Channel
The constraints of the worldwide Covid-19 pandemic require OESO to adapt its educational structure.
A new initiative responds to this need: the OESO-SEMPIRE VIRTUAL EDUCATIONAL CHANNEL.
It is built on the basis, already operational, of the OESO-SEMPIRE Platform
coordinating the educational activities of a network of Pilot Centers of Excellence in Esophagology worldwide.
Like many of the previous ones, this approach is original, multi-disciplinary, and, from the outset, global.
Its implementation is made possible by use of the virtual techniques of communication available today.
Each time, one of the Pilot centers will propose a challenging clinical case open for interactive discussion, followed by the commentary of an invited expert.
The topic and time will be announced well in advance on the OESO website, with specification of the time to allow connection at a comfortable hour of the day.
for an innovative series of international "Staff meetings" with experts from the five parts of the world.
The OESO-SEMPIRE virtual channel will welcome, in addition to the Pilot Centers of the network
able to connect, the contribution of
Each Pilot Center to choose a preferable time (7-9 am or 5-7 pm) for its program
and know the corresponding time for other Centers wishing to attend the meeting.
Time: 7-9 am PDT (10 am-12 pm EDT / 4-6 pm CEST / 5-7 pm EAT / 10-12 pm CST)
