Advantages of the procedure

In Belgium, there is a need for proper endoscopic training outside the OR. Through this course, (aspiring) internists will be optimally prepared to do their first gastroscopy/colonoscopy on a live patient or improve their existing set of skills.

Target audience

This course is for GSO's (geneesheer-specialisten in opleiding ) considering to specialize in gastro-enterology. The course serves as an introduction to endoscopy and a basic training program.


Participants are young doctors employed in a Belgian hospital at a Department of Internal Medicine.

Dr. Wouter C. Very satisfactory course! The colonoscopy models need some work (colon preparation was not perfect), but overall very well presented and nice introduction to the technique.
