The Korean Society of Gastroenterology


Welcome all the members and visitor to the Korean Society of Gastroenterology (KSG)! /Chairman Cho Hyun Park / President Dong Ki Lee

Greetings from the President

Dear Members of the Korean Society of Gastroenterology,

We mark the 60th anniversary of its foundation this year. Thanks to the dedication and enthusiastic participation of many respected elder doctors and senior-junior members, the Korean Society of Gastroenterology has maintained its status as a mother society for all gastroenterology-related societies in Korea and has faithfully performed its role as a center for research and education on gastroenterology. I feel a great personal honor and a heavy responsibility to serve as the chairman of this long history and tradition. One year has passed since I became the chairman of the Korean Society of Gastroenterology. This year, we faced the unprecedented situation of COVID-19. We are progressing well with the efforts and help of our members. I will do my best to promote the development of the Society for the remainder of the year.

For the rest of the year, we are going to move forward with the following.

First, we will continue to promote the achievements and plans of former presidents and the board of directors.

Through continuous communication with various gastroenterology-related societies, we will pursue integration and development as a society. In particular, we will stipulate the society encyclical for efficient operation and development of the 5th Korea Digestive Disease Week (KDDW), in which the Korean Society of Gastroenterology and gastroenterology-related societies will proceed together. In addition, we will continue to communicate with participating societies to develop the society representing the Korean digestive field. Furthermore, we will promote academic research and exchanges with overseas researchers through association with Japan Digestive Disease Week and Taiwan Digestive Disease Week and develop opportunities to enhance KDDW's international standing and expand the field of gastroenterology.

Along with academic development through academic conferences, we will establish guidelines for medical care, hold training courses for primary care physicians, reinforce communication and interactions with nationwide local gastroenterology societies, present opinions on reasonable insurance benefits, and communicate with the general public through active public relations for the latest knowledge.

Above all, I will do my best to communicate and help solve the problems of members of the Korean Society of Gastroenterology.

I sincerely appreciate the preceding chairman, vice-chairman, board of directors, and all members, who have led the Society for the past year and have devoted themselves to the development of the Society, and look forward to continuing your interest and active participation. In addition, I wish our members happiness and health in the future.

Thank you

December 2020
