Since 2010, Giovanni Maconi directs the School of gastrointestinal ultrasound of the Gastrointestinal Unit at Luigi Sacco University Hospital endorsed by the Italian Society of Ultrasonology in Medicine and Biology (SIUMB), where are organised theoretical and practical courses on ultrasonography of the gastrointestinal tract, mainly devoted to inflammatory bowel diseases.
Since 2014, Giovanni Maconi organised within the EduCom activities, and takes part as also a tutor, the Endoscopy and Imaging Educational Workshop organised by the European Crohn's and Colitis Organization (ECCO) at annual ECCO meeting
