President’s message

AUGIS headshot

A two-day Trainee Masterclass in Nottingham aimed predominantly at senior trainees was a great success, covering a wide breadth of the OG, HPB and bariatric curriculum, with specific emphasis on topics for the fellowship exam.

The 2015 DDF Conference, incorporating the annual AUGIS scientific meeting, took place in June. The organising committee prepared an excellent and varied programme and I hope many of you were able to attend.
