Advantages of the procedure
In Belgium, there is need for proper endoscopic training outside the OR. Through this course, aspiring fellows of intern medicine will be optimally prepared to do their first gastroscopy/colonoscopy on a live patient or improve their existing set of skills.
This course is for GSO's (geneesheer-specialisten in opleiding) considering to specialize in gastro-enterology or aspiring internists & gastroenterologists. 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.
