Education Committee

Education is one of the most vital areas in which the BSG is involved – from the annual conference to small local meetings. It is essential that we offer access to high-quality educational tools and events to our members and also support our members to organise their own events.

The BSG Education Committee is responsible for the programme of all educational meetings of the society, including those organised by the BSG’s sections. The Committee considers all aspects of education in gastroenterology. It is responsible for considering applications for financial support in regard to attending conferences and educational training courses and it advises on nominations for such fellowships and awards. In considering the education strategy for the BSG it is important that we remain aligned with the BSG mission statement, specifically by supporting the strategic pillar of service improvement and advancing knowledge, so that the Society remains a resource of high quality information, guidance and education.

BSG Education Strategy
The BSG is delighted to publish this Education Strategy 2021-24, which builds on work done over many years and provides an update since the last strategy was published in 2017. This strategy will outline the five key priorities and give an overview and risk review.

Event Endorsement by the BSG Education Committee

The Education Committee will review and endorse meetings or resources that are deemed relevant and important to members of the Society. Endorsed meetings are promoted via the BSG newsletters and dedicated emails, and across our various social channels.
