Endoscopic Mucosal Resection (EMR) has emerged as one of the most important advancements in GI over the last 10 years. For established endoscopists, there have been no pathways to developing skills in this complex technique, until now.
The ASGE EMR STAR Certificate Program prepares endoscopists to overcome challenges, gain confidence and demonstrate their “readiness” to perform EMR to medical colleagues.
Endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR) is defined as the use of various snares, cautery and injection/lifting technique in the resection of large, complex or high risk colonic polyps.
The EMR STAR Certificate Program includes two
1) Lower GI
2) Upper GI
Physicians may choose to pursue a
Certificate of Completion in the Lower GI module only, or sign up for
both modules at the same time to receive a discount. However, successful
completion of the Lower GI module is a prerequisite for participation
in the Upper GI module.
Participants will be expected to complete all components of the
curriculum in sequence. At the conclusion of the program, participants
will receive a transcript of the activities they have completed and
their performance on the cognitive and skills assessment components of
the program. Participants who pass the assessment components will
receive a certificate of completion. Participants may use these
documents for assisting them with obtaining privileges within their
practice setting or documenting specific skills obtained from this
