Please let us introduce “Young ESGAR (YE)”, an exciting initiative to promote active participation of young members within the vibrant ESGAR community. The main goal of Young ESGAR is to generate a forum of enthusiastic young members to represent the interests of young residents, radiologists and researchers within ESGAR. We aim to create an informal and interactive platform to network, exchange ideas and help shape the future of ESGAR.
Since the launch in 2019 over 100 young ESGAR members from more than 25 different countries worldwide have joined Young ESGAR and now form a dynamic community.
Young ESGAR is currently coordinated by an international team of 12 YE members who are also representing YE as delegates in the research, educational, workshop and membership committees:
Doenja Lambregts, Amsterdam, Netherlands
Nino Bogveradze, Tbilisi, Georgia
Roberto Cannella, Palermo, Italy
Damiano Caruso, Rome, Italy
Francesca Castagnoli, London, United Kingdom
Katja De Paepe, Cambridge, United Kingdom
Marta Duczkowska, Copenhagen, Denmark
Verena Obmann, Bern, Switzerland
Caecilia Reiner, Zurich, Switzerland
Carmelo Sofia, Messina, Italy
Federica Vernuccio, Palermo, Italy
Ana Villanueva Campos, Madrid, Spain
Young ESGAR organises a range of (online) activities and is actively involved in the ESGAR annual meeting programme:
Research Mentorship Programme
Young ESGAR is involved in the ESGAR Research Mentorship Programme that was launched in 2020-2021 and then re-launched as a peer-to-peer mentoring programme in 2022-2023.
The Young ESGAR anatomy e-Tutorials are short educational videos that are designed to make anatomy fun again!
ESGAR Annual Meetings
Young ESGAR helps organise the School of ESGAR (SOE)sessions, as well as the Tricky Cases and the online Cases of the day quiz. YE also organises the “Speed mentoring sessions” where residents can interact with senior mentors from the ESGAR faculty in an informal setting.
