Evaluation Criteria

The Institute will assess the degree to which the proposed visit meets the objectives and goals of the ACG Edgar Achkar Visiting Professorship program. Applications from North American GI Training programs will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • The degree to which the training program documents and demonstrates an unmet need for the visit in their training program.
  • The extent to which the proposed speaker(s) fulfill this unmet need.
  • The commitment of the training program to promote the event locally. In particular, we expect the recipient institution to coordinate events in such as a way as to include community GI practitioners, whether through a local gut club event or by inviting them to the GI grand rounds.
