Elevate Leadership Retreat

Promoting diversity in gastroenterology is vital for equitable healthcare. Despite the benefits of a diverse medical workforce, under represented in medicine (URiM) (per AAMC definition) and LGBTQ+ physicians face disparities in career advancement.

ASGE's Elevate Leadership Retreat targets early-career URiM physicians (1-3 years post-fellowship) with a focused weekend program encompassing learning, coaching, and networking. It equips participants with essential tools for success in gastroenterology, fostering connections and mentorship. This initiative reflects ASGE's commitment to supporting URiM physicians, contributing to improved patient care and innovation through diversity.
