The Master of the WGO Award is the highest honor WGO can bestow on a member and is granted only to those individuals who have provided outstanding dedication to the mission of the WGO and achieved distinction in such areas as scholarly research, teaching, service to WGO and the community at large.
The Award was created to recognize these contributions and by this recognition provide incentive, encouragement and guidance for others to significantly contribute to their fields. The Masters of the WGO Award is a capstone career award and is given in conjunction with each World Congress of Gastroenterology. The next awards ceremony will take place during the upcoming World Congress of Gastroenterology in Dubai, UAE from 12-14 December 2022.
Recipients of the Masters of the WGO Award will receive an engraved plaque to be presented at the time of the General Assembly at the 2022 World Congress in Dubai and will receive recognition in WGO publications and on the website. Recipients may also use the title of “Master of the WGO” and the letters “MWGO” in conjunction with their name.
