ASGE to collaborate on endoscopy simulation training

The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy has partnered with medtech company Surgical Science to develop education tools for gastroenterology.

Under the collaboration, the two will create gastrointestinal endoscopy simulation-based training and curricula, Surgical Science said in a Nov. 30 news release. Surgical Sciences' Simbionix GI Mentor is currently used for training with upper and lower gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures.

"The use of GI simulation needs to further evolve, particularity to aid in the standardized attainment of complex procedure skills such as for ERCP and EUS, as they require a high level of technical, cognitive and non-technical competence," Bret Petersen, MD, president of ASGE, said in the release.
