Membership

We at PSG strive to represent the best interests of the digestive disease patients and gastroenterologists of Pennsylvania.

We provide a voice for the gastroenterology community within the Pennsylvania Medical Society in a number of forums and participate in the CMS Carrier Advisory Committee with Highmark Medicare Services.

The PSG holds a two-day annual fall meeting that provides quality CME pertaining to important and relevant topics to the practicing gastroenterologist and heptalogist. Attendees are able to learn about new diagnostic and treatment options in gastroenterology, as well as become updated in pertinent practice management issues.
