This is one of a series of documents prepared by the American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) Training Committee. This curriculum document contains recommendations for training, intended for use by endoscopy training directors, endoscopists involved in teaching endoscopy, and for trainees in endoscopy. It was developed as an overview of techniques currently favored for the performance and training of colonoscopy and to serve as a guide to published references, videotapes, and other resources available to the trainer. By providing information to endoscopy trainers about the common practices used by experts in performing the technical aspects of the procedure, the ASGE hopes to improve the teaching and performance of colonoscopy.
