You can choose to join the full program, or only the upper/lower GI course.

Our practice-based course will equip you with the latest techniques and technologies, including:

  • Esophageal High Resolution Manometry (with Chicago Classification 4.0)
  • Impedance-pH monitoring (with Lyon consensus)
  • High-Resolution Anorectal Manometry (with London Protocol and Classification)

Don't let this opportunity pass you by - enhance your expertise in GI function testing today!


To gain knowledge of upper and lower GI function testing, through understanding the theoretical workings of these tests and their practical applications. To become better acquainted with the Laborie measurement systems.


  • Basic principles of, and indications of upper and lower GI function testing
  • Interactive demonstrations of HRM, impedance-pH test and HRAM test procedures
  • Test protocols and analysis of results
  • Clinical interpretation of findings, normal values and important publications, Chicago Classification and the London Classification for HRAM
  • Case discussions, e.g. patient cases with achalasia, distal esophageal spasm, reflux symptoms, belching, fecal incontinence & other abnormalities
  • Hands-on practice in editing and report generation
  • Systems Troubleshooting ‘What to do when things go wrong’
