The New Zealand Society of Gastroenterology aims to develop a workforce that is best able to serve the population of Aotearoa New Zealand. We believe this means selecting a diverse group of trainees including women, men, trainees with rural and metropolitan backgrounds, and trainees with diverse ethnic backgrounds, particularly those of Māori and Pacific Island heritage. We currently have an under-representation of Māori, Pacific Island, female and provincial origin gastroenterologists.

If you are a doctor of Māori or Pacific Island heritage, are female, or grew up in a provincial area of Aotearoa New Zealand, please consider training in gastroenterology and joining us. The Society is committed to and actively working towards making the training programme accommodating to you.
