What is OMED
OMED was constituted as an international society, independent from Gastroenterology, in 1962 during the World Congress of Gastroenterology in Munich. The selected name at the time was "International Society of Endoscopy" (ISE) that was changed to OMED on July 3, 1976.
The organization is composed of the National Digestive Endoscopy Societies (or of the Endoscopy Sections of the Gastroenterology Societies) of the three Zones: European (ESGE), Pan-American (SIED) and Asian-Pacific (APSDE). OMED is currently composed of 63 Societies.
The General Assembly, made up of representatives from these Societies, meets every four years during the World Congress and elects the Governing Council and the Committees. The President and the Executive Committee (Vice-Presidents, Secretary General and Treasurer) rotate every four years between the three Zones.
