Young Endoscopist Platform


Let’s introduce the YEP…


The YEP, or Young Endoscopist Platform, represents a group of enthusiastic and dynamic young gynaecological surgeons. It is part of the ESGE structure and focuses on networking and professional development initiatives for future endoscopists.

By creating the Young Endoscopists Platform, the ESGE’s goal is to strengthen the search for new methods and practices in endoscopy, and to bring expertise and know how together. The goal of the YEP is to establish and maintain a working group of willing and capable junior members:

  • To further develop training in Endoscopy in Europe.
  • To give junior contribution to new developments, projects and research in endoscopy.
  • To have close cooperation with organizations such as the ENTOG and national society initiatives, i.e. the DGGG “Junges Forum” in Germany.


And strengthen your endoscopic skills
