In response to feedback from our trainees; in 2020 the AGITG ASM would like to offer a mini-preceptorship.

Given that we have particular gastric cancer expertise available, we propose a gastric cancer mini-preceptorship.

This exciting initiative will aim to cover surgical, radiation, medical oncology and translational science as aspects of study of gastric cancer.

Our intention is that our invited faculty nominate the seminal publications in their field for nominated trainees to review; we will then invite other trainees to present illustrative gastric cancer cases highlighting where the learned evidence could be used to assist decision making.

It is anticipated that the invited faculty will have access to the trainee summaries and case presentations prior to the meeting as they will be expected to provide comment and instruction on the day.

We would like our members and committees to encourage attendance at this preceptorship for their trainees.

There is no registration cost to trainees to attend the mini-preceptorship.
