Education Committee

What we do

We reinforce UEG as the main provider and leading actor in advanced postgraduate training in gastroenterology, hepatology and endoscopy.

We endorse current and develop additional mechanisms for basic science and evidence based medicine to link into clinical gastroenterology and teaching. Our aim is to develop effective training tools and new teaching formats to meet the learning requirements of the future and, by this, enhance quality of teaching in Europe.

The e-learning editors are members of the Education Committee and responsible for ensuring UEG e-learning remains a world class GI resource. UEG e-learning has established itself as one of the richest online educational resources in gastroenterology, and we continue to work hard to make it even better.
