American Gastroenterological Association

In support of our 16,000 members who are committed to high-quality patient care, the American Gastroenterological Association (AGA) is pleased to join the ABIM Foundation and many other esteemed medical societies in the Choosing Wisely® campaign. By developing clinical guidelines and quality measures, the AGA ensures that the patient care decisions made by gastroenterologists are guided by scientific evidence. Through the Choosing Wisely campaign, we hope to further increase physician and patient understanding of which tests and procedures will benefit which patients, and in doing so minimize the misuse of costly screening and diagnostic tests.
