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.

Our aim is to provide and share new and exciting innovations that are relevant to both surgeons and IBD physicians, emphasising the importance of multidisciplinary practice.

Some of the topics included are:
•Medical versus surgical decision making
•Innovations in the world of IBD – what’s here and what’s coming
•Technical interventions to reduce the risk of relapse
•Patient-reported outcomes in practice

Speakers include Professors Andre D’Hoore (Leuven), Laurent Beaugerie (Paris), Subrata Ghosh (Birmingham), James Lindsay (London), Vineet Ahuja (Delhi), Ronan O’Connell (Dublin), Nicola Fearnhead (Cambridge), Simon Lal (Manchester) and Paolo Gionchetti (Bologna).

This year the annual MasterClass Dinner will take place on Tuesday 11 September in The Hall at Balliol College. We hope you will be able to attend: it provides a networking experience amidst the true atmosphere of Oxford.
