AGA CORE Program Connects Young International GIs with US Programs

Dec. 21, 2016

The new program serves as a channel to facilitate connections between interested members and institutions.

AGA has developed a new program to help match early-career international AGA members with mentors and institutions who can provide the desired experience in U.S. Specifically, the AGA Clinical Observation and Research Education (CORE) Program's goal is to bring early-career international doctors/trainees into the U.S. by providing  basic research opportunities (one or two years) and clinical observerships (one to three months).

The program does not provide funding, but serves as a channel to facilitate connections between interested members and institutions. Applicants and/or institutions are required to have adequate funding to cover their expenses. Arrangements, including logistics and specific requirements, might vary from place to place.
