Gastrointestinal bleeding is often a symptom of a disease such as peptic ulcers, polyps, ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease; it could even be caused by cancer in the colon, stomach or esophagus. Take a deeper dive to find the source in AGA’s Digestive Diseases Self-Education Program’s (DDSEP® 9) chapter on Gastrointestinal Bleeding by Thomas Kovacs, MD, and Dennis Jensen, MD. Learn about common causes from these experts as well as medical and surgical management for upper and lower GI bleeding.

Dr. Kovacs is the director of the Center for Ulcer Research and Education (CURE)/Digestive Diseases Clinical Trials Unit at UCLA Health. Dr. Jensen is a professor of medicine at the David Geffen School of Medical at UCLA, associate director of the CURE and directs the CURE Hemostasis Research Group.

Written by leading experts, DDSEP 9 is the industry’s premiere educational tool for staying current on GI developments. Use this resource to be prepared for the next ABIM Knowledge Check-In Exam on March 5 or 6, 2021, or MOC Exam on April 26, 2021.
