For your practice, there is no better partner in the delivery of high-quality endoscopic patient care than ASGE. The ASGE Foundation is dedicated to supporting endoscopy and endoscopic practice. Private and academic practice groups that donate to the ASGE Foundation support ASGE’s research, education and public outreach initiatives. These vital resources help physicians stay at the forefront of advances in endoscopic practice and improve patient care and digestive health.
ASGE moves research into practice. Research leads to the development of new techniques, devices and applications that make endoscopy safer, more comfortable and more effective for diagnosing and treating digestive disorders. ASGE-funded research is focused, practical and can be quickly translated into substantial improvements in clinical practice and enhanced healthcare delivery.
ASGE offers unparalleled hands-on training and education in gastrointestinal endoscopy. Through hands-on courses, online learning, practice management tools and our world-class Endoscopic Learning Library, ASGE’s Institute for Training and Technology (IT&T) strives to improve the quality of endoscopy delivered to the public and keep practitioners on the cutting edge through specialized education and training.
ASGE supports your practice with patient education resources. There is a significant need to be able to give patients and the public quality information- not something they can find on any web site and that is not validated. ASGE educates patients and the public with reliable information on gastrointestinal endoscopy through patient education brochures, videos and online resources.
ASGE ensures our members are the go-to experts for high quality endoscopy. With clinical practice guidelines, media coverage, online “find a physician” tool and the Endoscopy Unit Recognition Program, ASGE supports high quality endoscopic patient care.
ASGE advocates on behalf of members and their patients. From healthcare reform, to regulatory and legislative issues, to clinical research funding and public awareness, ASGE is focused on the pressing issues that impact GI and your practice.
