Sponsor a new SSAT Member Today

The SSAT was founded in 1960 to bring together the best and brightest gastrointestinal surgeons from around the world. Drawing from the leading medical schools and hospitals in the United States and abroad, the SSAT membership is composed of many of today’s leading practitioners, teachers, and young surgeons. Help make the SSAT a stronger society by sponsoring a new or potential SSAT Member.

There are two easy ways to sponsor a new member:

  1. Log into the SSAT Members Only area and initiate an application for a new member by completing the "Sponsor a New Membership Candidate" section. You will automatically be selected as the candidate’s sponsor, and will be notified to upload your letter of support once the candidate completes and submits his/her online membership application.

  2. Encourage your colleagues, residents, and students to join the SSAT by starting the application process themselves at
With your help the SSAT can continue to grow and thrive as the leading society for GI surgery!
