Inflammatory Bowel Disease Virtual Roundtable Series for Health Care Providers

The Inflammatory Bowel Disease Case Virtual Roundtable program was established in 2016 by Russell D. Cohen, MD, Director of the Inflammatory Bowel Disease Center, and David T. Rubin, MD, Co-Director of the Digestive Diseases Center, to open an interactive patient-centered dialogue between the multidisciplinary University of Chicago Medicine IBD team and colleagues around the world. 

UChicago Medicine successfully treats thousands of patients with IBD each year — many with complex disease history or symptomology — so we are in a unique position to offer expert insight on effective treatment of these diseases. At the forefront of Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis research, UChicago Medicine IBD also attends several international research conferences annually, presenting and sharing the most up-to-date research findings on inflammatory bowel disease.

The IBD Virtual Roundtable is a monthly forum where our experts present these evidence-based findings, new options and treatment paradigm shifts to their colleagues. Physicians attending this educational series will contribute to the discussion with their own experiences and questions, all in the service of better patient outcomes.
