The St Mark’s flagship annual conference is going ahead this year with a new 2-day programme, accessible online on
19th – 20th November 2020
It is our pleasure to welcome you to our Annual Frontiers in Intestinal and Colorectal Disease Congress. As always, we try to cover topics that we all come across on a day-to-day basis as well as some of those cutting-edge symposia that are likely to translate to clinical practice.
This year, St Mark’s Frontiers is coming to you entirely online and registration is free, so please take a moment to register now by clicking the 'register' button on the right.
About the programme
St Mark’s Frontiers is organised into five plenary sessions, all of which are multidisciplinary and presented by leading experts. Our theme for this year is ‘Difficult Decisions in GI Disease’ so expect some fascinating talks and insights from across the spectrum of gastrointestinal disease and care. We are sure you will find this two day event interesting, stimulating, educational and at times controversial.

We encourage all colleagues to participate in these interactive sessions by posing questions to the expert panel. We will tackle these as we go and seek your opinions on hot topics via simple polls.
To participate in polls, please download the app on your iPhone or Android in advance. You will be given further instructions on how to access the polls at the start of the meeting.
We look forward to welcoming you to this interactive 2-day programme.
