Roux Group


The Roux Group is for AUGIS Trainee Surgeon Members. 

Roux Group Objectives


  • We will engage with trainee members via educational events throughout the year designed to target various aspects of the upper GI curriculum and promote networking and collaboration amongst its members to promote excellence in the field.
  • We will work directly with AUGIS-affiliated associations, such as BOMSS and GBIHPBA, to maximise opportunities for its members and align its activities with these organisations, and ensure the trainee voice is heard.
  • We will promote upper GI surgery as a career for medical students, foundation doctors and core trainees, to increase the uptake of the specialty and support their career progression.
  • We will organise an annual training weekend for members to enhance education and training, and provide an opportunity for a social get together at the Gala Dinner following the AGM.
  • The Roux Group Committee to be elected in a democratic and transparent process at the Annual Roux Group Weekend.
