  • Asian Young Endoscopist Award (AYEA) 2018 program

    Post date: 2017/12/27

    On behalf of the organizing committee and Korean Society of Gastrointestinal and Endoscopy, we would like to invite young enthusiastic endoscopists from Asia to apply for the Asian Young Endoscopist Award (AYEA) 2018 program which will be held from June 18 to July 1, 2018 in Korea.

    AYEA program is intended to promote advancement and collaboration among participating Asian Societies of GI endoscopy. By participating in this program, we expect the endoscopists outside Korea to be able to acquire or develop new knowledge or technical skills about GI Endoscopy at selected endoscopy training centers in Korea. This newly acquired knowledge and endoscopic skills are anticipated to be invaluable in promoting patient care back in the applicants’ home country or region. 
    Grant (USD 2,000~3,000) will be given to each trainee to cover travel expenses and accommodation costs.

    In addition to the training program, participants of AYEA 2018 are invited to take part in a special program for young scientists, 'Young Endoscopist Forum', which will be held in conjunction with International Digestive Endoscopy Network (IDEN) 2018. We encourage many young endoscopists from Asian countries to take an active interest and participate in this program.

    *Deadline for submission of application is March 12, 2018.

    *The awardees will be notified after March 28, 2018.
