e-Learning for Health Care Professionals

The Gut Microbiota and Health Section of the European Society of Gastroenterology and Motility (ESNM) is pleased to provide a first set of e-learning slides on gut microbiota dedicated to gastroenterologists. It contains a selection of scientific information about the human gut microbiota. This e-learning has been developed in cooperation with the WGO.

This course is split into 4 parts:

  • Introduction
  • Diarrhea
  • Colonic diseases
  • Questions from patients

UPDATE: Gut Microbiota for Health’s gastroenterology e-learning course on the gut microbiota now has a new home! This 1-hour video course, which covers evidence on the role of the gut microbiota in normal gut function and in gastrointestinal disease, will now join the collection of material for continuing medical education available through United European Gastroenterology (UEG).
