Medical Training at the ENDO CLUB Academy Hamburg
The ENDO CLUB Academy (ECA), established in 2011 together with an appointed scientific board of world known German experts, sees itself as a multidisciplinary platform for the exchange of medical knowledge. It is an association of the University Medical Center Hamburg-Eppendorf (UKE), the Asklepios Clinics and ENDO CLUB NORD, which together with the company Olympus operate the ECA training center for advanced medical training.
The Endo Club Academy (ECA) facilitates up to 60 international Medical Expert Training courses per year, which are well accepted by up to 700 attendees. Across 240 sqm, the ECA offers a variety of dedicated areas to accommodate lecture, hands-on and reprocessing sessions. Overall, up to 25 participants are invited according to course formats to make use of various media tools during lecture, exercise on five state-of-the-art Endoscopy systems during dry and bio model training and familiarize with the safe and effective use of reprocessing equipment.
With its name ENDO CLUB Academy, Olympus underlines its commitment to the location of ENDO CLUB SPRING and ENDO CLUB NORD. The latter takes place each November in Hamburg and is the endoscopy highlight of the year.
The close collaboration with the German Society for Gastroenterology, Digestive and Metabolic Diseases (DGVS) has made the Training Center a well-known venue for constantly improved training curriculums, also due being located on the premises of Hamburg’s University Hospital (UKE).
