The CAG Visiting Clinical Professorship award is offered annually to a member of CAG who is a proven educator and an outstanding clinician with interest in clinical research.
The recipient of this award will visit a minimum of six centres across Canada and depending upon their area of expertise, present education talks, engage in small group case-based discussions, demonstrate new endoscopic techniques or assist in quality assurance endeavors in the region. The CAG will support air travel and the host centres will be responsible for associated visit costs. The CAG Visiting Clinical Professor is available as a benefit to CAG members in the community.
For information on scheduling a visit to your centre please contact Joanne Ardron (CAG National Office).
