A Passion For The Gut. Publication. Oral history.

Gastroenterology in Australia began as a specialty in the late 1940s with the return of inspired, dedicated and ambitious men from war service and overseas registrar positions. Early gastroenterologists combined teaching, clinical work and research with leadership and mentoring, and established the foundations for the growth of this specialty in Australia.

In 1959 the Gastroenterological Society of Australia was founded as a professional scientific body to guide and uphold standards of practice and to assist the advancement of gastroenterological knowledge in this country. This is the story of the development of this speciality in Australia, and of the Society that has supported it over the past fifty years.
