Endoscopy

Welcome to the endoscopy section of AUGIS. Surgeons remain a vital part of the national endoscopic workforce providing a significant proportion of service delivery for both elective and emergency endoscopy. With the pressures imposed by the pandemic, never has there been a more time critical moment for us to embrace our involvement and commitment to endoscopic training and service. Endoscopy within AUGIS encompasses not only gastroscopy but also endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) as well as ERCP and endo-bariatrics. I would encourage all of you to not only support the endoscopy section of AUGIS but also to lend your experience and expertise as trainers of the future. Please take a moment to navigate this section, get involved and I would welcome any feedback you may wish to offer.
