European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

National Society Membership

ESGE Society Membership

The ESGE represents national societies of endoscopy in Europe, the Mediterranean rim and North Africa. One society from any of these countries is eligible for membership. One representative from each member Society may vote in the General Assembly which traditionally meets annually at the time of the United European Gastroenterology Week (UEG Week).

ESGE offers the possibility of dual membership to all ESGE Society Members. This cooperation provides for additional benefits to both the cooperating society and their members. Presently nine ESGE Member Societies have taken advantage of this collaboration.


  • Each member society holds one vote at the ESGE Assembly of Delegates
  • Certificate of membership
  • Permission to use ESGE logo when quoting ESGE membership on website and in printed documentation
  • Listing in ESGE Member Society directory
  • Announcement of Society meetings on the ESGE website and at ESGE booths
