Training Modules

IHS’ comprehensive library of patient cases and clinical tasks is developed closely with leading gastroenterologists and medical education experts to ensure the proper skills and learning progression towards competency requirements are attained.

Basic Endoscopy Skills

Develop fundamental endoscopy skills, including scope maneuvering and targeting, air/water insufflation and suction, and picture capture, in this introductory training module. Master steering and operation of flexible endoscope functions through step-by-step tasks in a variety of patient cases.

Scope Skills:

  • Scope manipulation and torque control
  • Air/water insufflation and suction
  • Camera manipulation and photo capture

Diagnostic Upper GI Endoscopy

Examine the upper GI tract from the mouth to the duodenum. Practice intubating the esophagus, steering through the pyloric passage, and retroflexion of the flexible endoscope while identifying and sampling lesions, polyps, and other pathologies. Toggle on real-time scope path guidance and camera operation aids for instructive training.

Scope Skills:

  • Esophageal intubation
  • Pyloric passage
  • Retroflexion in gastric fundus
  • Air/water insufflation and suction
  • Camera manipulation and capture

Diagnostic:

  • Mucosal biopsy sampling (single- and double-bite biopsy forceps, polypectomy snare excision)
  • Anatomical landmarking
  • Completion of diagnostic reports
