Trainees

Trainees in Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition _ TiPGHAN
Is a relatively small group of specialist PGHAN trainees and general paediatricians with an interest in PGHAN who meet twice a year.  Our first meeting is held in conjunction with the associates group (known as BSPGHAN ATM), and the second meeting is an Annual Meeting held in January when we have the post-graduate day. Both of these meetings provide a forum for discussion of current issues and concerns for the trainees, promoting of other educational opportunities and an opportunity to network with other trainees from across the country.
Our training committee is made up of myself as trainee chair, trainee secretary and CSAC representative. BSPGHAN website contains useful educational resources, dates of courses of interest and information on endoscopy training.
