The Sudanese Society of Gastroenterology (SSG) was the first interdisciplinary medical society in Sudan founded in 1975 with the initiative of Prof.Zaki Eldeen Ahmed. Since then the Society has achieved many milestones and acquired international recognition. The former President of the society Prof. Suliman Salih Fedail has been awarded ‘Master of Gastroenterology’ by the World Gastroenterology Organization.
‘More Science, More Practice’ is the theme for the 4th International Conference of Sudanese Society of Gastroenterology presently being held in Hotel Corinthia, Khartoum. This conference is in collaboration with European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy and with the representation from the World Gastroenterology Organization (WGO).
The European Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ESGE) is dedicated to the advance of skilled endoscopic practice through workshops, publication of guidelines, and research.
The SSG conference was preceded by hands-on training workshops in abdominal ultrasound, laparoscopy and advanced endoscopy. The training workshops were conducted by leaders in advanced endoscopic techniques from Europe, Egypt, Asia and South America.
The scientific programme has international guest speakers as well as local experts and pioneers in gastroenterology and gastrointestinal surgery. This conference is truly International and a golden opportunity for delegates to exchange local experience with international icons in the field of gastrointestinal diseases, endoscopy and surgery.
