The European Section and Board in Gastroenterology and Hepatology (ESBGH) is tasked by its parent body the European Union of Medical Specialist (UEMS) "to achieve the delivery of high-quality patient care by promoting and harmonizing high standards for medical practice and postgraduate education, and thus clinical excellence".
The ESBGH has 30 full member countries, 3 associate member countries, and 11 observer countries.
The European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology is a fully validated assessment of knowledge of gastroenterology and hepatology as laid down in the European Curriculum for Gastroenterology and Hepatology Specialty Training Programme known as the "The Blue Book".
