All gastroenterology trainees who are BSG members will automatically become members of the Trainees' Section (TS) of the BSG. We aim to promote and safeguard gastroenterology training by undertaking the following activities:

  • 2 yearly national survey of trainees' opinions
  • Planning trainees' symposium at the BSG annual meeting
  • Planning & organising the annual BSG SpR training day
  • Planning & organising the annual SpR management training weekend
  • BSG TS awards for OOPE & improvements in training in gastroenterology
  • Represent the views of trainees at the BSG and other specialist organisations
  • Provide a forum for members to discuss matters related to training and the transition to future posts
  • Provide an opportunity for members to network at meetings for both educational and social purposes
