Conference Coverage > ACP 2017Mar 31, 2017 | Gale Scott

Internal medicine physicians may encounter patients in their practice who could benefit from the expertise of a gastroenterologist.

Speaking today at the American College of Physicians Internal Medicine Meeting (ACP 2017) in San Diego, California, Hashem El-Serag, MD, MPH, of Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, a professor of gastroenterology and hepatology gave a standing-room only audience a quick course in his specialties so they could treat many of these patients. El-Serag is a well-known expert on hepatocellular carcinoma, and has published over 350 papers on the topic.

Among his subjects today was whether a non-specialist can competently care for patients with hepatitis C infection.
