28 WORLD GASTROENTEROLOGY NEWS APRIL 2015 Editorial | Expert Point of View | Gastro 2015: AGW/WGO | WDHD News | WGO & WGOF News | WGO Global Guidelines | Calendar of Events nologies in the field of diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, both via biologic animal and plastic models. Stations included diagnostic upper and lower endoscopies, stenting, hemostasis, polypectomy, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), video capsule endoscopy, radiofrequency ablation (RFA) for Barrett’s esophagus, and endoscopic bariatric procedures. A total of 250 doctors have attended these interactive, hands-on sessions. Working with their own hands and directed by very eminent and famous doctors, trainees rate these sessions as the most beneficial to their practice. African countries had a very good representation during this event; 30 doctors from Sudan, South Sudan, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Uganda, and Kenya were invited and fully sponsored to attend the postgraduate course, the therapeutic endoscopy workshop, and the hands on training. Some of them attended the training for the first time and were very impressed; others have attended the training before. I have been so glad to see how some of them have progressed from beginners to skilled endoscopists over the last few years - some of them have even become endoscopy unit directors in their countries. Cairo is an outstanding venue for our meeting and the Conrad Cairo Hotel is situated near the city center.
