The course was well received by all the delegates who felt it was a “well run course with excellent instructors” and provided a “very good taster to endoscopy”. The International delegates reported being “hugely grateful for the trainers, organisers and the local staff” for the opportunity to attend the course.
Delegates attending the course demonstrated an improvement in their knowledge base following the course, felt the course met their training needs and was of relevance to their future careers. In certain cases in appeared to inspire some delegates who were equivocal about an endoscopy career prior to the course “I am inspired to perform endoscopies. I will be under supervision for first sessions when I get back. Aiming to do 100 cases by the next training session.” Several trainees expressed a wish to “attend a future course”.
