Advanced Endoscopy Fellowships

As we continue to restart our service provision following the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the issues for the gastroenterology specialty will be the repercussions for endoscopy training.

To support our trainees, BSG is developing a central database of all advanced endoscopy fellowships in the UK & Ireland to be hosted on the BSG website. This will enable trainees to access information on a single portal, and plan their future careers in endoscopy.

COVID-related endoscopy research studies and audits – are you interested?

COVID-19 has had a major impact on GI endoscopy. There are many challenges we face to establish sufficient endoscopy capacity going forwards. Solutions will involve new ways of working and utilising novel technologies. We have been overwhelmed (but not surprised) by the enthusiasm of colleagues with positive ideas and the range of diverse proposals from around the UK.

To address endoscopy in a COVID-19 world we have established a BSG Endoscopy COVID  Research Group (as part of the existing Endoscopy CRG) which will oversee our strategy to ensure that whatever we do has a clear and strong evidence base – and where that does not exist- embed research or audit within any service changes.

We are very keen to make sure that good ideas and research work progress collaboratively and have the potential for maximal benefit for patients and service delivery. We wish to avoid duplication and ensure that groups are not reinventing the wheel and this programme of work will be inclusive and collaborative. We have established a series of Working Groups (WG). If you would like to be involved in any of this work or have ideas or suggestions, please contact as below:
