From humble beginnings, EGHS has grown to become one of the most active professional medical societies in the UAE. Over the years, it has been able to maintain high standards while remaining successful.
Currently, EGHS has around 160 active members from various specialties such as Medical and Surgical Gastroenterology, Paediatrics, Radiology, Pathology, General Medicine and Surgery.
The society meets every month with a set agenda to ensure its members have an active schedule of events, seminars and forums covering clinical problems related to the specialty.
There are on-going plans to conduct epidemiological studies, clinical trials and basic research so as to have authentic data on the common and relevant clinical problems in the UAE.
