Oxford IBD Masterclass 2018

"New horizons: medical and surgical innovations in IBD"

The 2018 Oxford MasterClass will be held on 11-12 September 2018 at the Examination Schools. The theme of the meeting will be medical and surgical innovations in IBD, in conjunction with the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland. As always, the meeting will be delivered by a distinguished faculty of expert speakers and the programme will combine plenary sessions with interactive workshops, ensuring plenty of opportunities to ask questions and discuss with colleagues.

The programme has an oustanding international Faculty, including Professor Andre D’Hoore (Leuven) as the Truelove Lecturer, Vipul Jairath (Canada) , Laurent Beaugerie (Paris), Paolo Gionchetti (Bologna), Ronan O’Connell (Dublin) and Nicola Fearnhead (Cambridge).
The meeting in the Examination Schools captures the essence of Oxford, as does the experience of dining in Balliol College for the Course Dinner, but it is the science and clinical practice discussed at this meeting, now in its 45th year, that matters most.


Oxford IBD Masterclass 2018 has been approved for CPD points/credits from:

  1. The Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain & Ireland awards 8 CPD points for the first day and 4 CPD points for the second day
  2. The Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the United Kingdom for 9 category 1 (external) CPD credits


We do hope you will join us for what will be an engaging and thought provoking 2-day event and look forward to welcoming you to Oxford!
