The purpose of this symposium is to provide up-to-date information on the pathogenesis of the disease process, as well as evidence-based recommendations on the management and monitoring of IBD and related inflammatory disorders. Through this course, the gap between state-of-the-art practice and current practices will be closed to provide a high quality, comprehensive, multidisciplinary approach to patients with IBD. We believe this approach will improve the quality of care provided to patients, decrease the risk of complications and morbidity, and reduce the overall burden of IBD on the patient and society. We will be utilizing a novel framework of mentor experts and mentee case presentations during this symposium. We will also be discussing state of the art lectures in training needs, artificial intelligence, and underrepresentation in IBD.
