20 WORLD GASTROENTEROLOGY NEWS FEBRUARY 2017 Editorial | Expert Point of View | Gastro 2016: EGHS-WGO | WDHD News | WGO & WGOF News | WGO Global Guidelines | Calendar of Events Announcing the next WGO Train the Trainers Workshop! The World Gastroenterology Organ-isation (WGO) in partnership with the WGO Rabat Training Center (WGO-RTC) and the support of the two member societies Société Ma-rocaine Des Maladies de L’Appareil Digestif and Société Nationale Française de Gastro-Entérologie, is pleased to announce the next Train the Trainers workshop, the first French language TTT, will take place in gorgeous Marrakech, Morocco 26-29 April 2017. Since 2001, the Train the Train-ers (TTT) program, developed by WGO, exposes educators in gastro-enterology, hepatology, endoscopy, oncology and GI surgery to current educational techniques and philoso-phies. It brings together faculty and participants from across the globe in an intensive and interactive four-day workshop. The workshop is character-ized by numerous hands-on sessions with ample opportunity for discussion and interchange. This has proven to be a highly successful method of dis-seminating teaching skills to GI phy-sicians who hold training positions in their own countries. Delegates are equipped with skills which they can then implement in their countries. The Train the Trainers workshop is considered a benefit of WGO membership, and for every workshop WGO Member Societies are asked to nominate two physicians who are leaders or up-and-coming leaders in their field (Gastroenterology, Endos-copy, Hepatology or GI Surgery).
