Diagnostic EUS Training


Master the knowledge and skills to incorporate diagnostic EUS in your practice

More than ever before, gastroenterologists find themselves in practice settings with a growing demand for endoscopists who are well trained in diagnosing diseases of the pancreas, bile duct, liver, spleen and gallbladder as well as in the staging of cancers. Although the EUS expertise required to provide this type of diagnosis is widely available in academic facilities, the need for it in community-based settings has become increasingly urgent.

Diagnostic EUS Training has been designed specifically to address this issue. Focused on helping practicing physicians achieve competency in this high-demand area, the program’s online and hands-on curriculum covers the full spectrum of diagnostic EUS and FNA in four to six months and culminates in a proctorship with an EUS expert.
