2020 ESEGH applications now open

18 Dec 2019

The 2020 European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology (ESEGH), which was launched in 2018, is now open for applications from candidates around the globe.

The ESEGH succeeded the Specialty Certificate Examination (SCE) in Gastroenterology and the European Board of Gastroenterology and Hepatology Examination (EBGHE) and is delivered jointly in partnership with the British Society of Gastroenterology (BSG), the European Section and Board of Gastroenterology (ESBGH) and the Federation of the Royal Colleges of Physicians of the UK.

For European based candidates, success in this exam is a demonstration of having achieved the knowledge necessary to fulfil the requirements of the ESBGH curriculum which is a Europe-wide description of the level expected of a specialist in Gastroenterology and Hepatology.

All gastroenterology trainees have the opportunity to take one high quality examination which ensures that certified specialists have sufficient knowledge of their specialty to practice safely and competently as consultants.

Applications will close on 15 January for non-uk candidates and 11 March for UK candidates. The exam will take place on 22 April.  Please see the ESEGH resources page for further information.
