Important Notes

  • Events should have educational benefits for BSG members, at the discretion of the BSG Education Committee.
  • At least one organiser should be a BSG member.
  • Events should have CPD approval from the RCP (or other relevant accrediting body) if the event takes place within the UK.
  • Event organisers should contact the BSG Education Committee as early as possible. Applications should be submitted at least 2 weeks before the next BSG Education Committee meeting, so that the programme can be tabled.
  • Event organisers should try to avoid dates clashing with other BSG-endorsed/supported/organised events. The BSG reserves the right to ask organisers to change the date if a clash would occur.
  • The BSG Education Committee's decision is final.
