The IBD Clinical Practice Video Series is an accredited activity to educate gastroenterology trainees and recent graduates on the latest information on treatments and management in inflammatory bowel diseases (IBD). This program is a four-part, free online series of engaging videos based on identified knowledge gaps among trainees. The activity is developed by the Rising Educators Academics and Clinicians Helping IBD (REACH-IBD), a task force under the CCFA’s National Scientific Advisory Professional Education Committee. Offering providers with this vital information will ensure a better understanding of key topics in IBD, and ultimately improve the care of their patients.
