Apply by May 2 to become the next editor-in-chief of TNG

Help shape the future of our early career publication.

Help shape the future of your community by becoming the next editor-in-chief (EIC) of AGA’s premier publication for early career GIs, The New Gastroenterologist (TNG).

Written by — and for — our community of fellows and early career members, TNG is the only publication that focuses on translating the challenges early career GIs face into tangible solutions. TNG shines a light on hot, yet seldomly discussed topics — like gender-based pay inequality, physician burnout and the role of money management in mental wellness — while also offering best clinical practices, making it a truly open and safe space for all early career GIs.

Serving as EIC not only offers a unique opportunity to highlight up-and-coming researchers and clinical experts but creates an environment where the EIC can explore his or her own academic interests and shape their own career trajectory.

“Serving as EIC has allowed me to create an outlet for my own academic interests, such as clinical medical ethics. I have used the platform to create a case-based ethics series featuring scenarios which we often find ourselves in — such as inappropriate open access endoscopy referrals, early liver transplantation in patients with alcoholic hepatitis and addressing code status prior to endoscopy. TNG is the only publication where ethics and GI has been intertwined, and I am certain that future editors can expand TNG in line with their own innovative ideas and academic interests. “

Applications for editor-in-chief of TNG are due May 2, 2022. The term is from Oct. 1, 2022–Sept. 30, 2027, with a transition period starting July 2022. Learn how you can make your mark in this prestigious role and apply here.
