ESGE is looking for someone like you!

The deadline is approaching, apply by Thursday, October 3, 2019!

Would you like to be involved in making ESGE a friendlier and more attractive society to young GI endoscopists? Would you like to be engaged in shaping the future of the EYE Working Group? Well, application for membership in this group is open for another two weeks so don’t miss your chance to apply.

About the EYE Working Group

The EYE Working Group was initiated in 2017 under the guidance of Mário Dinis-Ribeiro and Marianna Arvanitakis. Currently, it is composed of 12 members from nine different countries. Together, they are developing a forum for young endoscopists who want to make a difference in the way GI Endoscopy will evolve. In order to provide a “young” perspective, they are also given a voice at ESGE committee meetings.

The first EYE Working Group project took place during the first ESGE’s annual congress, ESGE Days, in Budapest in 2018. Here in their own allocated space, the EYE Zone, the working group designed not only a programme tailored for young endoscopists, but also ensured that there was room to relax and network. Presently, they are busy planning for the upcoming EYE Zone at ESGE Days in Dublin.

About the position

As a member of the EYE working group you will have the opportunity to participate in ESGE committee activities (e.g., education, quality, research, ESGE Days scientific committee) and other ESGE endeavours. You will also be responsible for the development of the EYE Zone sessions at ESGE Days.
