Welcome to the trainee section of the ALSGBI website. Laparoscopic surgery truly crosses the boundaries of the conventional surgical specialties and we have worked hard to ensure that all ALSGBI trainees, regardless of their stage of training or sub-specialty will find material to interest them on this website.
An up to date summary of the developments within various fields of laparoscopic surgical practice. These editorials have been written by ALSGBI Council members and contain evidence and opinion on all of the various sub-specialty laparoscopic. The level is appropriate to that required at the Intercollegiate Specialty Examination but will also provide an in-depth introduction to sub-specialty issues for more junior trainees.
