Gives an overview of all the topics involved in the surgery of the entire gastrointestial tract, from the esophagus to the anus, including liver, spleen, pancreas, and gall bladder. While most of the topics discussed are beyond my training as a naturopath, in the areas that I am familiar, (e.g. proctology) I found the coverage to be useful but insufficient without further elaboration from other sources.

I have taken this program and I highly recommend it to all health-care providers - Orville R. Weyrich, Jr PhD NMD.
