AFS Journal

The AFS Research committee is hard at work developing Foregut, The Journal of the American Foregut Society. We anticipate it to be up and going in 2020. Abstract submission for the 2020 American Foregut Society Annual meeting is now open! We are encouraging submissions from residents and fellows.

The AFS has established the Residents and Fellow’s Forum in order to encourage the participation of the next generation of scientists and clinicians in the field of Foregut disease. This is an opportunity to present your research in front of world leaders in Gasteroenterology and Surgery, like-minded peers and representatives from companies involved in foregut diagnostics and treatments. The non-CME venue offers the opportunity for trainees and their mentors to seek out industry sponsorship to attend the AFS meeting and for industry to meet the future leaders in the foregut field. In addition, there will be a limited number of travel grants awarded to the top abstracts…
