Symposia and online live events educational opportunities

The Falk Foundation events provide a forum for experts in the field of digestive and metabolic medicine to share their expertise. These continuing education events are held at the regional and international levels as webinars or as hybrids of in-person and online interactions.

Due to the pandemic situation, the insufficient vaccinations in many regions of the world, the resulting restrictions of international travel as well as the limitations in organizing large events it is not possible for the Falk Foundation to reliably plan our international Symposia in 2021.

Please note that apart from the international meeting in Mannheim, no further Symposia are planned so far. Everything else will be decided after assessing the infection situation in September.
