The BSG Trainee section wants you to get on your bike and join GastroCycle 2014 (12th-15th June 2014)
GastroCycle 2014 is an initiative organised in collaboration with the BSG Trainees Section and Skyline Events to raise funds for the BSG's sister charity Core and support its work fighting diseases of the gut, liver and pancreas. You can be part of a group of 50 riders setting off from the BSG's office in Regent's Park and arriving at Manchester's GMEX approximately 240 miles later in time for the BSG 2014 annual meeting.
As part of GastroCycle 2014 you will receive three nights hotel accommodation (+/- accommodation the night before in London), luggage transfer, secure bike storage, meals and snacks, mechanical support, help with fundraising plus the knowledge that you are raising awareness of GI diseases and helping the BSG and Core fight them. You will also have a great sense of achievement in cycling between England's two main cities.
The registration fee to secure your place is £99 and you will need to commit to a minimum sponsorship target. For more details and to sign up go to www.gastro-cycle.co.uk.

Hepatology at a Glance
Friday, 11 January 2013 15:31
With the start of the new year, we are pleased to announce that we had an overwhelming response to the call for applications to co-author Hepatology at a Glance. The quality of the applications was quite outstanding but there were 2 clear winners, Dr Deepak Joshi and Dr Geri Keane: they join Dr Alison Brind Senior Editor, on the team. We have also nominated Dr Ahmir Ahmad to champion the junior general medical trainee viewpoint and to bring his very specific general editorial expertise to the project. If successful we hope that there will be further opportunities to collaborate with Wiley-Blackwell in this way and would encourage many of you who submitted excellent applications to keep these future ventures in mind.

Opportunity to contribute to Frontline Gastroenterology curriculum-linked review series
Tuesday, 23 October 2012 11:24
Frontline Gastroenterology is soon to launch a new series of Clinical Reviews written by Specialty Registrars. Linked to specific competencies in the 2010 gastroenterology curriculum, the aim of these articles is to provide the reader with evidence of reflective practice or continuing professional development that can be linked to the JRCPTB eportfolio. Each article will contain several 'best of 5' style questions to test learning, and act as a revision aid for the Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE) in Gastroenterology: the editorial team includes college exam setters who will moderate the content in this regard. The Editorial Team of Frontline Gastroenterology are keen to receive submissions for this new series, and more detailed instructions to authors can be found at: http://fg.bmj.com/site/about/guidelines.xhtml#curriculum
