IPEG is an inclusive international organization that fosters new ideas, innovation, and education in pediatric minimally invasive surgery. Benefits of IPEG membership include:
- significant discounts on Annual Meeting registration fees.
- access to the Journal of Laparoendoscopic & Advanced Surgical Techniques and Videoscopy;
- Access Pass, a new benefit that offers discounted access to IPEG webinars
- networking with peers;
- opportunities to share clinical research.
As IPEG continues to expand and develop internationally it understands that there is a need to adjust to world economics. Therefore, a new membership tier structure has been recently implemented to make membership more accessible to all colleagues from across the globe. For practicing surgeons, dues are now based upon country, with three Tiers based primarily upon economic development within the region.
