Welcome to the Trainee section of the ALSGBI website !

The Academy was founded in 2019 as a trainee-led committee to work alongside the ALSGBI and ALTS Council in the hope of fostering a supportive community for trainee members of ALSGBI and providing a gateway to recent developments in minimally invasive surgery.

As a group, we aim to represent a voice and standard for training in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, whilst also providing opportunities for the professional and educational development of the student and trainee body of ALSGBI.

Our Vision

Why join the Academy ?

Anyone with ALSGBI and ALTS trainee membership is welcome to join us. The Academy provides an opportunity to work with the ALSGBI Council to help shape the future of laparoscopic surgery, deliver minimally invasive surgical education on an international level, represent future surgeons of all backgrounds, and develop your professional skills as part of an inclusive working committee.

As a trainee member, you will also have access to an abundance of educational resources, discounted training courses as well as the ALSGBI awards and travelling fellowships. The Academy functions collaboratively and enables engagement with a network of experts in minimally invasive surgery, across all surgical specialties.

We are heavily involved in the ASM and work to encourage trainee participation at ALSGBI events; from the running of LapPass® stations and assisting on training days, to presenting Academy-led research and acting as trainee moderators for the live operating.
