Junior Academicians

Program Goal

IFFGD created the Junior Academicians program to engage junior clinicians and researchers in order to increase their interest in functional GI and motility disorders. We hope that this will help to invigorate the field, raise awareness of IFFGD resources, and develop thought leaders for the future.
