    SSAT and Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery (JOGS) Associate Editor Search

    The Board of the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract (SSAT) has appointed an Ad Hoc Editorial Search Committee to conduct a broadly based academic search for an Associate Editor, with the potential to transition to the position of Editor-in-Chief of The Journal of Gastrointestinal Surgery (JOGS) upon mutual agreement of both parties. The Editorial Search Committee invites nominations, including self-nominations, for this prestigious position. All nominations must indicate that the proposal is acceptable to the nominee. Nominations are due December 1, 2014. Click here for complete details.

    SSAT Foundation

    The SSAT Foundation is the philanthropic arm of the Society for Surgery of the Alimentary Tract. The Foundation was established in 2000 to help the Society achieve its ongoing mission to advance the science and practice of surgery in the treatment of digestive disease. Research and education remain the cornerstone of fulfilling that mission, and the Foundation seeks to support the SSAT's current initiatives: the Layton F. Rikkers Master Clinician Award; the Career Development Award for young faculty members (through donations to the unrestricted General Fund); and the Residents and Fellows Research Conference held at the time of the SSAT Annual Meeting (through donations to the restricted Research Conference Fund).

    The purpose of the unrestricted Rikkers Fund is twofold:

    1. To help the SSAT achieve its ongoing mission of research and education by advancing the science and practice of surgery in the treatment of digestive disease; and
    2. To honor an outstanding surgical clinician at the SSAT meeting at Digestive Disease Week via presentation of an annual Layton F. Rikkers Master Clinician Award.
    SSAT Members can donate online in the Members Only area of the SSAT Website; non-members may download the Donor Form.
