Welcome to the Gastroenterology Interest Group & Gators’ Learning Entity (GIGGLE)! 

At GIGGLE, we want to provide the UFCOM community with exposure to the wonderful field of GI, which is a subspecialty of Internal Medicine. We want to show everyone how fun, engaging, impactful, and important GI is as a field of medicine. We know how easy it is to make GI the butt of the joke, but we hope you can GIGGLE with us!
