The Association has evolved for those with an interest in upper gastrointestinal surgery and is therefore best placed to develop clinical services, pursue education and training and encourage research. The development of sub-specialisation is rapidly evolving and clinical service developments at national and local level require the type of national perspective provided by AUGIS.
Currently under the AUGIS umbrella we have the GBIHPBA, BBUGSS, and the Roux Group (for Trainee Members only). AUGIS Membership allows access to updates and information from AUGIS and these other associations, along with membership registration rates for all our meetings.
AUGIS Membership provide access to a network of colleagues working within Upper GI Surgery throughout the UK.
