JOIN THE MOVEMENT
We are the first and only society that has bridged the gap between gastroenterology and surgery in the treatment of foregut diseases. Join the movement: Foregut diseases are complex and as such a specialty on it’s own. We are on the forefront of developing the foregut fellowship curriculum to educate our new partners. Be part of the movement: get involved with our committees and write the future of foregut as a specialty. Our committees include: Advocacy, Bariatrics, Clinical Practice, Fellowship Curriculum, Life Long Learning, Membership, Program, Research and Robotics.
