Belgian Young Geriatricians

What is BYG? We are a group of young and upcoming geriatricians.

Our goals are :

To promote a positive attitude towards geriatric medicine in general and especially for junior doctors

To promote recruitment of junior doctors into Geriatric Medicine

To improve the standard of care for older patients in junior medical staff and allied health professionals

To create a social network for young geriatricians to exchange experiences and discuss early career issues
