In conjunction with the Royal College of Surgeons of England and charitable organisations, AUGIS has three Surgical Specialty Research Leads (SSL) representing three areas of UGI surgery to promote and enhance research within this surgical specialty.
SSLs are part of the RCS Surgical Trials Initiative and form a key strategic link between the designated Surgical Trials Centres and national clinical research networks within their discipline. Until now Upper GI surgery has been represented by a single SSL covering the breadth of our association’s portfolio.
Our SSLs work alongside consultant surgeons, trainee surgeons and Allied Health Professionals to develop this important work.
