The Southern California Society of Gastroenterology (SCSG) is a non-profit professional society dedicated to enhancing the practice of gastroenterology by enriching gastroenterologists in the region through continuing medical education. The SCSG aims to provide an environment of professional growth and social exchange for its members.
The changing approach to medicine and education over the years has been reflected in the evolving format of the SCSG. The annual SCSG GI Symposium and Liver Symposium meetings have become well-established premier GI-focused conferences in the western United States. The success of the SCSG lies in its willingness to change and the active participation of its membership. Further innovations will undoubtedly occur as the SCSG enters its fourth decade.
