The complexity of the program: 36 academic hours.

With the development of endoscopic technologies, pathological changes in the gastrointestinal mucosa, in particular, polypoid neoplasms, have become more common. The latter most often come from the mucosa, but they should be differentiated with submucosal neoplasms or deformity from the outside. According to statistics, polypoid neoplasms are detected in 6% of all performed EGDS, they represent a heterogeneous group, which may differ in histology, neoplastic potential and treatment.  Most epithelial neoplasms of the gastrointestinal tract are accidental findings during endoscopic examination, since 90% of patients have no symptoms. However, some benign tumors have a risk of malignancy or are detected as part of hereditary diseases, which determines the active tactics in their treatment. To make a correct diagnosis and choose a further treatment method or follow-up of the patient, it is important to perform a full endoscopic examination and, most often, a histological assessment.  Moreover, the development of endoscopic technologies currently allows not only to conduct high-quality diagnostics, but also provides the possibility of minimally invasive treatment of identified neoplasms.

The course includes three blocks – the first and second are devoted to the diagnosis and methods of endoscopic removal of benign neoplasms of the upper gastrointestinal tract. In a separate section, the algorithm for diagnosing and managing patients with Barrett's esophagus is analyzed.

The purpose of the program is to improve the knowledge of specialists on the identification, differential diagnosis and endoscopic treatment of patients with various epithelial neoplasms of a benign nature in the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.


As part of the course, we:

- we will master the technique of esophagogastroduodenoscopy (including biopsy) using various virtual technologies and vital chromoscopy,

 - we will master the diagnostic algorithm for Barrett's esophagus with a biopsy technique according to modern standards, as well as the tactics of managing patients with this nosology,

- we will master the techniques of endoscopic resection and dissection in the treatment of various benign epithelial neoplasms of the esophagus, stomach and duodenum.

Our course includes video lectures, presentations, as well as videos from the operating room with an analysis of interesting cases.

Form of attestation of trainees: intermediate testing in the course sections, final testing after the completion of the development of the educational modules of the program.


Students who have successfully passed the final certification are issued a certificate of professional development.
