Welcome to the BSG Taster Membership Microsite!
The BSG has re-launched its Taster Membership scheme to promote Gastroenterology to aspiring medical students and all junior trainees pre-ST3. We are looking to attract students, foundation doctors and Core medical trainees 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 to the BSG scientific meeting is actively encouraged. To apply, students foundation doctors and CMTs should complete and down load the simple membership application and direct debit form, available on the open BSG homepage. Cost is minimal (£15pa). The support of a BSG member is needed to join the Society and their BSG membership number and contact email should be entered on the application form to act as authentication for the 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 direct debit).
