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.
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.
