Ensuring competence in endoscopy

Nov 14, 2016, 20:27 PM
Endoscopic procedures have become standard tools for evaluation and treatment of gastrointestinal disorders. Diagnostic and therapeutic procedures are widely available and can be performed safely and competently. Endoscopists have traditionally been trained in the art and science of endoscopy as part of fellowship in gastroenterology, pediatric gastroenterology, or surgery. These procedures have been considered an integral part of the practice of gastroenterology and surgery. Separate specialty boards have not been developed for endoscopy as a discipline. Since there are no boards specific to endoscopy, individuals who have no formal training as part of a specialty in gastrointestinal diseases often apply for, and in some cases are granted, privileges in endoscopy. In some cases, the motivation is to provide services that would not otherwise be available. In others, it is the ability to generate income from these procedures that constitutes the motivation. Even endoscopists who have completed formal training programs may not have received extensive experience and training in more complex endoscopic procedures, such as therapeutic biliary and pancreatic endoscopy (ERCP, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography) and endoscopic ultrasonography. Additionally, as new endoscopic techniques are developed, trained endoscopists may require additional training in the new procedure prior to utilization in patient care.
