The LSGE is a scientific society of medical doctors who are interested in the function and diseases of the gastro-
intestinal tract. The aim of the Society is to promote scientific progress, keep the GI community up to date with
the latest advances in the GI field, encourage research and publications, increase the awareness of both physicians
and the public about practice recommendations, and eventually serve as an advocate of the Gastroenterologists in
the Medical arena and the society
Currently, there are 170 active members in the Society, from every region in Lebanon, the majority being trained
endoscopists. In order to promote the set goals, the Society organises, on a regular basis, scientific sessions given
by local gastroenterologists and physicians from other fields, alternatively between the different Lebanese cities.
A yearly Congress is held, with the majority of speakers being well recognised international experts.
