The Association of Gastrointestinal Physiologists (AGIP) is an Associate group within the British Society of Gastroenterology, inaugurated in 1991.
AGIP has an elected Council and members attend Professional Bodies meetings to ensure that the interests of GI Clinical Scientists / GI Physiologists continue to be represented during the process of shaping the future of diagnostic services within the UK. AGIP works with The National School of Healthcare Science to manage the national recruitment for postgraduate entry to the Scientist Training Programme for GI Clinical Scientists and the Higher Specialist Scientific Training programmes.
AGIP has established the Accredited Scientific Practice (ASP) programme which enables employers to develop bespoke short courses to meet training needs of its Healthcare Science workforce. AGIP is also a member and active participant of the Professional Bodies Council, Academy of Healthcare Science which aims for a clear ‘One Voice’ to represent the majority of over 65,000 people working in the profession of Healthcare Science across the UK.
AGIP organises an annual ‘Upper GI Physiology & Therapy Masterclass’ which this year is to be held at the Royal College of Physicians, 11 St Andrews Place, Regent’s Park, London, NW1 4LE on the Tuesday 17th November 2020.
