The annual hybrid Minimally Invasive and Novel Therapeutics (MINT) continuing medical education (CME) course, seeks to equip clinicians with advanced technical knowledge of the latest surgical and endoscopic procedures needed to diagnose and treat foregut disease utilizing novel educational formats such as video-based learning to encourage “technique transfer”.

We further hope to foster ongoing collaboration between gastroenterologists, surgeons, advanced practice providers, nurses, and dietitians to optimize the multidisciplinary care of patients with foregut digestive disease.

The annual conference is both in-person, with an optional hands-on component, and virtual live-streamed (and recorded).

Highlights for MINT 2023 include:

  • Pancreas track
  • Hernia track
  • Optional hands-on sessions in robotic surgery, endoluminal therapies, pancreatitis
  • Nursing and APP breakout session
  • Now offering Nursing CEUs!
