Welcome to the BSG Student and Foundation Doctor Membership Microsite!
The BSG is launching a student/foundation doctor membership scheme. This aims to promote our specialty to aspiring medical students and junior trainees to give them a taste of membership of our professional Society before committing to full Trainee membership. We are looking to attract student and foundation doctors who show enthusiasm for Gastroenterology by participation in audit, research SSU's or other gastroenterology related projects.
Benefits of this scheme include access to a tailored microsite on the BSG website, with educational content, political commentary and an informal mentoring scheme (supported by the BSG Trainee section). Substantially reduced conference rates are available for BSG scientific meetings and submission of abstracts is actively encouraged.
To apply, students and foundation doctors should complete and down load a simple membership application and direct debit form, available on the open BSG homepage. Cost is minimal (£15pa). You will need the support of a BSG member to join: their BSG membership number and contact email on your application form, acts as authentication for your application
Download and complete the application form and return with the direct debit mandate to the BSG offices. You will need the email and BSG membership number of the Consultant sponsoring your application (this could be a gastroenterologist who is your educational/clinical supervisor or a supervising gastroenterologist for your clinical attachment, SSU or foundation post.).
Once the BSG receive this they will email you and your sponsor to confirm receipt of your application. You will then be contacted to make your first payment of £15 (after the first payment all future payments will be taken by yearly DD).
