MedStar Georgetown Transplant Institute Symposium (MGTI 2019) will consist of three parallel tracks navigating the diagnosis and treatment options for kidney, pancreas, liver, and intestines requiring a transplant. The educational program will consist of three parallel tracks navigating the diagnosis and treatment options for kidney, pancreas, liver, and intestinal disorders including those requiring a transplant. These tracks include: Advances in Liver Diseases and Transplantation, Current Issues in Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation and Dialysis, and Update on Liver and GI Diseases and Transplants for Children.
The Advances in Liver Diseases and Transplantation track will address the gap between best and current practices in order to provide the best care to patients, reduce morbidity and mortality, and reduce the burden of liver disease in the Mid-Atlantic region. Up-to-date information on liver disease and transplant topics relevant to community practitioners will be highlighted. We will focus special attention on multidisciplinary management of tumors of the hepatobiliary tract as well. Through the Current Issues in Kidney and Pancreas Transplantation and Dialysis track the content will examine kidney and pancreas transplantation with a special emphasis on the multidisciplinary approach in pre and post-transplant care of patients with renal dysfunction and diabetes and following transplantation. The third track, Update on Liver and GI Diseases and Transplants for Children, will focus on topics that will be of interest to pediatric gastroenterology, primary care and allied health providers during their interactions with infants and children with small bowel disease, parenteral nutrition, and chronic liver diseases including those likely to lead to transplantation.
MGTI 2019 offers an educational experience for attendees to interact in an interprofessional learning environment with designated tracks, lectures and panel discussions pertaining to your specific specialty.
