ACCEA Info and Update

The ACCEA round opens Thursday 7 February 2019 and closes 5pm Thursday 4 April 2019.

If you would like to apply for a BSGAR citation for your application, please start preparing your documents early. The timeline for applications for BSGAR citations will be publicised in a few weeks so please look out for postings. The deadline for applying for a citation is substantially earlier than the overall ACCEA deadline, because the scoring process for citations must be completed before the ACCEA deadline. Please allow for this in your preparations.
Best wishes,
Helen Bungay, BSGAR Secretary

Message from BSGAR President - Dr Andy Lowe

On behalf of the BSGAR Committee, I am delighted to announce Professor Stuart Taylor has agreed to become our Vice-President. He will begin his 2-year term as BSGAR President in 2020.

Stuart works as an academic clinical radiologist specialising in gastrointestinal and oncological Imaging at University College London. He was appointed Professor of Medical Imaging in 2011 and is currently a NIHR senior investigator.

He is well known to many of you having previously served BSGAR as Research Officer between Feb 2007 and April 2011 and has given many lectures to the society over the years.
I am very much looking forward to working with him again on the BSGAR committee, and I look forward to seeing you all in Liverpool in February 2019 at the inaugural meeting of the BSGAR & BSUR.
