We would like to invite young enthusiastic endoscopists from all around the world to apply for the International Young Endoscopist Awards (IYEA) 2020 program, which will be held between June 1 and June 14, 2020, in Korea.

The IYEA program is intended to promote technical advancement and collaboration among international societies of GI endoscopy. This program has been held annually for young doctors in Asia from 2014 to 2019, and around 200 young endoscopists have participated in the AYEA (Asia Young Endoscopist Awards) program so far. From 2020, it will be expanded worldwide under the name of IYEA (International Young Endoscopist Awards).

This program provides partial financial support to young physicians under 40 years of age working in GI endoscopy to receive clinical training in GI endoscopy at select endoscopic training centers in Korea to enable them to acquire and develop advanced knowledge and technical skills in GI endoscopy.

In addition to the training program, accepted applicants to the IYEA program are invited to take part in the ‘Young Endoscopist Forum,’ a special program for young endoscopists which will be held during the International Digestive Endoscopy Network 2020 (IDEN 2020), attracting nearly 1,000 physicians and researchers from more than 35 countries.

The application deadline for the IYEA 2020 program is February 28, 2020. We cordially request your assistance
with encouraging many young endoscopists from among your society members to take an active interest and apply for
the program.
