The goals of the College are to advance knowledge of gastrointestinal disease; educate specialists in gastrointestinal disease; represent the interests of the clinician practicing in the field of gastroenterology; ensure quality in patient care; and to promote patient education on gastrointestinal conditions and digestive health.
