Endoscopy training during general surgery residency.Surg Laparosc Endosc. 1995 Oct; 5(5):393-5.SL
The endoscopic experience of surgical residents was evaluated following the introduction of a formal surgical endoscopy program, which consisted of a 2-month rotation, generally at the postgraduate year 2 level. The resident was assigned to one attending surgeon and also had a formal laboratory session. There were many benefits, including a significant increase in endoscopic encounters. Program directors should seriously consider setting up a rotation with an experienced surgeon-endoscopist.
