As we continue to restart our service provision after the COVID-19 pandemic, one of the issues for the gastroenterology specialty will be the repercussions for endoscopy training, following the introduction of training programmes.
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 the trainee to access information on a single portal, and plan their future careers in endoscopy.
