ACG Visiting Professor Network

The ACG Institute is proud to provide: The ACG Visiting Professor Network – A Resource for Noted National Speakers on Clinical GI.

GI Training programs have areas of need that are covered in a variety of ways, with outside speakers and guests to help fill those gaps.

Now you can have the American College of Gastroenterology come to you, and have a well-known national expert visit your institution to spend time with your fellows, educate colleagues and visit with young faculty for mentoring at no cost to you. You make the choice of speakers. Please see the link below for materials describing this unique opportunity.

We hope that you take advantage of this program to enhance the education of your fellows, faculty and community colleagues.
