The Southern California Society of Gastroenterology (SCSG) invites the submission of abstracts describing clinical, basic science, and/or psychosocial research in the fields of endoscopy, gastroenterology, gastrointestinal surgery and hepatology.  Our goal is to promote research among trainees in the field, stimulate collaboration and foster the development of ideas for future studies.  Authors may submit abstracts of completed work, work in progress, or work presented elsewhere within the past 12 months.  All abstracts will be peer reviewed, and all that meet the specifications below will be selected for a poster presentation.  


Who Should Submit?
