5th Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry

At the 2012 ECCO Congress in Barcelona, the Governing Board started an educational course for Corporate Members of ECCO. The aim of this course is to update Corporate Members on the latest developments and standards in IBD from a clinical perspective.

The ECCO: EduCational COurses for Industry are now organised by ClinCom and are split up between the Basic and the Advanced ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry. Both courses take place every other year.

Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry: This educational course is a practical introduction to IBD for colleagues in industry that covers a broad range of topics. Participants may be non-medical or medically qualified without experience in IBD.

Advanced ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry: This educational course is an advanced module of the Basic ECCO: EduCational COurse for Industry. It is a 4-hour highly interactive session between Key Opinion Leaders (KOLs) and industry. Each topic is introduced in a short overview talk by one KOL and is followed by an interactive panel discussion between ECCO-KOLs and industry.
