The UEMS Section of Surgery is pleased to announce its exciting project: the creation of a common Oesophago-Gastric Surgery Division within the UEMS Section of Surgery that will encompass both upper Oesophago-Gastric and Thoracic Surgery. This decision was enthusiastically made because of matching interests.The first fellows are warmly encouraged to participate in the EBSQ examination in Munich end November, and then a common working area is expected to come into existence around December.The syllabus, knowledge and skills section is currently a work in progress. We look forward to embarking on this adventure with you!
It is with deep sorrow that the UEMS heard of Professor Lars Påhlman's death on 21st November 2015. Professor Påhlman was a founding member of the Coloproctology Division, served as a Chairman of the Division and as an examiner from the very beginning until 2015.
The EBSQ Examination within the Division of ECS Surgery (OesophagoGastric) will be held in München Germany November 30th 2016.
