GI Summer School

June 20 - 22 2024
TOULOUSE, FRANCE

General Information

It is the tradition of ESPGHAN to hold a Gastroenterology School every year. After the last activity in Spain, we invite Young Investigators and Trainees to join us for another exciting school in the beautiful city of Toulouse, France.
The aim of the school is the promotion of best practice in the delivery of care in paediatric gastroenterology, focusing on most prevalent and/or most  serious disorders. This summer school targets an audience of young medical professionals who either wish to develop expertise, or have a current interest, in the management of gastrointestinal disorders in children. It is also a welcoming environment for delegates to present their work (oral presentation) and receive feedback from colleagues and faculty.
