he end-product of such training, is that the certified endoscopist, should be capable of performing all standard diagnostic and therapeutic procedures.
Traditional training in endoscopy takes place during the 1-2 years of a traditional three year fellowship in gastroenterology. This type of training provides a good foundation for the skills of upper GI endoscopy and colonoscopy.
However, the increasing need for training and the recent introduction of a large number of advanced endoscopic techniques has lead to the development of third tier small courses dedicated to advanced endoscopy.
he primary purpose of the program is to provide an outstanding training program in basic and advanced endoscopy in shortest time available. The key feature of the program will be the ability to provide a wide knowledge in advanced endoscopy by combining the endoscopic experience and facilities.
It is anticipated that the doctors undergoing this program will be the best trained gastroenterology/endoscopy surgeon or physician in the World. They will become leaders in the field.
