Participants will earn the ASGE EMR STAR Certificate of
Completion by completing several components sequentially over the course of
three to six months per module.
|1. Online Curriculum
||2. Live Course and Assessment
||3. Course Follow-Up
|Prior to the skills-training component, enrollees will be required to complete several online components, including:
Baseline pre-test. This test will provide the enrollee an initial assessment of their knowledge.
Literature. Participants will read and review guidelines, technology reviews and key articles.
Instructional videos. Participants will view instructional videos from the ASGE Endoscopic Learning Library (ELL).
Interval assessment. Enrollees will re-take the pre-test following the online instructional components.
|The course in each module is designed to specifically teach standardized knowledge and motor skills in each specific procedure. On the first day, enrollees will participate in a didactic examination of the key concepts. The second day will include a half-day of detailed case-based video sessions and a half-day of intensive, standardized, hands-on training preparing enrollees for the skills assessment (3 participants per station). The third day, participants will complete a one-on-one skills assessment as well as a post-test, and will be provided feedback from their performance at the completion of the course.
- All enrollees will be provided a transcript detailing the completed curriculum, earned CME and assessment of performance in their specific learned skills.
- Participants who pass the assessment component will receive a Certificate of Completion in the specific learned skill.
- Participants who do not pass either the written exam or the skills assessment will be provided with information on the specific areas in which they did not succeed and options for further training and/or retesting.
