ESCG

The European Society of Comparative Gastroenterology (ESCG) is a non profit society for veterinarians specialised or with a great interest in veterinary gastroenterology and part of the European College of Veterinary Internal Medicine for Companion Animals (ECVIM-CA). www.ecvim-ca.org Main goal of the society is to bring together GI interested veterinarians in Europe and around the world and to connect about our passion. We also organise the ESCG stream of talks (scientific lectures and oral abstracts) and posters at the annual ECVIM-CA congress. www.ecvimcongress.org You can become a member of the ESCG if you are a registered veterinarian by contacting us, ideally during our annual general meeting at the ECVIM-CA congress. This is subject to a membership fee. This membership will give you a discount for the ECVIM-CA congress entry fee. You will also get added to our membership list on the website (which is currently also still under construction) and can then communicate and share information with other members. Veterinarians in post-graduate training (such as Residents of the ECVIM-CA and PhD students) are exempt from the membership fee.
