explores the pathophysiology of a variety of gastrointestinal disorders from
gastroesophageal reflux disease to cirrhosis.The course emphasizes fundamental
topics in gastrointestinal pathophysiology, with a focus on correlation to
clinical issues including treatment options for various common gastrointestinal
disorders, each of which are covered in detail.

provides evidence-based recommendations for the primary care management of
dyspepsia symptoms and underlying causes in adults. The guideline defines
dyspepsia broadly and inclusively, reflecting its presentation and management in
the primary care setting.

This note is a
set of concise, practical guidelines and checklists for the management of common
problems in gastroenterology and hepatology. The guidelines are not rigid and do
not apply to all situations. They are intended to provide the clinician,
especially trainees, easy access to basic information needed in day-to-day
decision-making and care.
