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
