The Society was able to hold a course during the Red Traffic Light COVID response level thanks to our new venue at Olympus New Zealand - Auckland.

We can all relate to the issues that the Omicron wave places in our everyday and holding a training course in February certainly had its share of challenges. 

The Society would like to thank our lead facilitator, Dr Judy Haung for helping to organise another successful course to support the next generation of G.I. endoscopists to understand the basics and get some hands-on scope time. 

Moving to Olympus allowed The Society to increase trainee numbers while adhering to social distance COVID rules and following protocols. Trainees were able to scope using models whilst getting advice from experienced gastroenterologists and surgeon endoscopists. 

Thank you to all of facilitators who gave their time and knowledge.
