Requesting your prior recognition on the online register
If you have already gained recognition of training in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy via the NZCCRTGE (including Grandfathering) you may request that your details be included in the online searchable register. Inclusion on the register is voluntary and will display your name and limited information about your pathway to recognition of training. Please email your recognition of training letter to conjoint@nzsg.org.nz. If you do not have a copy of your letter, please provide details in the notes regarding endoscopy type, pathway and year that you hold recognition for and we will try to confirm your details in the database.

Requesting your recognition be deleted from the online register
If you previously agreed to inclusion and wish to withdraw your details from the register you may send the request this in writing to conjoint@nzsg.org.nz.
There is no additional application fee to opt into the register for endoscopists who have gained recognition of training via NZCCRTGE.
