About Train the Trainers

Since 2001, the Train the Trainers (TTT) program, developed by WGO, exposes educators in gastroenterology, hepatology, endoscopy, oncology and GI surgery to current educational techniques and philosophies. It brings together faculty and participants from across the globe in an intensive and interactive four day workshop. The workshop is characterized by numerous hands-on sessions with ample opportunity for discussion and interchange. This has proven to be a highly successful method of disseminating teaching skills to GI physicians who hold training positions in their own countries. Delegates are equipped with skills which they can then implement in their countries.

Application Process

TTT participants are nominated by their WGO Member Society. All WGO Member Societies are invited to submit the names of two candidates; preferably one candidate holding a senior training position in his/her country and a second candidate entering or at a junior level training position. All participants must be fluent in English and able to attend the entire workshop, with arrivals on April 3 and departures anytime on April 8. TTT’s are limited to 50 participants and this workshop is considered a benefit of WGO Membership, as such preference will be given to societies who have paid their WGO membership dues through 2015.
