The Program for Endoscopic Teachers Webinar is an interactive workshop designed to improve endoscopic trainers’ ability to guide an effective endoscopy training session.  Led by expert faculty, this online course aims to improve endoscopic teaching skills and trainers’ conscious awareness of why and what they are doing when performing procedures so that they can explain maneuvers in a clear and effective way to teach others.

Participants will develop an awareness of adult education principles and best practices in procedural skills education and feedback provision.  Topics that will be covered during this interactive webinar include use of standard terminology, effective communication between trainees and trainers, and techniques for providing specific and constructive feedback.
