Superspeciality training includes comprehensive coverage including clinical work, basic as well as advanced gastrointestinal endoscopic procedures and research activities. During their training period candidates are exposed to a variety of clinical cases including the rare ones. Teaching program includes bedside teaching, case discussion, and seminars. Candidates are thoroughly taught the basics of diagnostic as well therapeutic gastrointestinal endoscopy so that at the end of their training program they should be able to carry out these procedures independently.
