Scottish Society of Gastroenterology

The Scottish Society of Gastroenterology evolved from the Caledonian Society in 2001. Its aim is to represent the professions with a primary interest in Gastroenterology including physicians, surgeons, nurses technicians and dieticians.  We are particularly keen to welcome applications from trainees.  The Society is dedicated to improving the care of patients with gastrointestinal problems through research and audit and by the promotion of high standards in clinical practice.
The Society has 2 meetings per year.  One takes place in Spring and the other Winter meeting takes place nearer Christmas.  There are research groups who meet regularly.
