Advancing Career Development in GI & Hepatology Clinical Care

About the NCSCG Webinar Series


The NCSCG Education and Trainee Committee Webinar Series aims to provide an education and career development focused resource for our GI community.  Our series has been developed with gastroenterology and hepatology fellows from training programs in northern California and incorporates sessions specifically focused on important aspects of career development and the job search process.  In addition, our series will also include high yield and hot topics in clinical gastroenterology and hepatology.  We offer these sessions as a free resource to anyone interested in participating. 


Registration Fees

Free of charge.

Registration will include live ZOOM webinar access and one year access to self-paced modules.

Register for once for the entire series!


Target Audience

This activity has been designed to meet the educational needs of physicians, physician assistants and nurse practitioners involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disorders.  In particular, given the focus of this webinar series on trainees and career development, we particularly invite gastroenterology and hepatology fellows as well as trainees across all stages of their education who are interested in gastroenterology and hepatology.
