Join us April 5-6, 2019 at the Cedarbrook Lodge near SeaTac for GIRT 2019, the annual health policy and practice management conference for physician leaders and practice administrators.


The conference will be unique in its focus on office efficiencies and interpersonal aspects related to patient, provider, and staff interactions, i.e. aspects that are critical to all of our practice operations but have not always received due attention in a comprehensive fashion.

Our mission is to expand knowledge through engaging and educational events that foster relationships in the field of gastroenterology in the greater Pacific Northwest.
