To excel clinically, it is essential for clinicians to update their knowledge and hence we continue to organize such international courses. Upto 30% of patients visiting pediatricians have a gastrointestinal or liver problem. It is, therefore, important that we help share the latest treatment guidelines with pediatricians.We are relying on evidence-based content and more hands-on learning modules so that attendees can benefit fully from the breadth of experience on offer by the faculty.
