In order to acquire competency in ERCP it is essential not only to master the use of a duodenoscope and cannulate the appropriate duct, but also to interpret a cholangiogram and be proficient in the various therapeutic techniques. Other essential skills, often overlooked include the detailed knowledge of the indications, risks, limitations and measures to prevent some potentially life-threatening complications.
ERCP courses, which provide simultaneously the state-of-the-art essentials of the technique and offer the opportunity for hands-on training, are scarce worldwide. Trainees and junior specialists, will have the opportunity for practice basic and advanced ERCP skills in specialized exclusive models, supervised by experienced endoscopists. During the course, interventional endoscopists will have the occasion to review the main topics of ERCP, through cutting-edge presentations by national and international experts in the field. Demonstrations of real cases with step-by-step discussions of alternatives actions will allow close interaction with the faculty. During the course, trainees and junior specialists, will have the opportunity for practice basic and advanced ERCP skills in specialized exclusive models, supervised by experienced endoscopists.
