The Korean Society of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (KSGE) developed regulations and a gastrointestinal endoscopy board in 1995. Although the KSGE has acquired many specialists since then, the education and training aims and guidelines were insufficient. Although endoscopic examinations are supervised by a specialist during a GI fellowship, some types of GI endoscopic examinations and treatments are difficult to obtain exposure. Fellows should acquire endoscopic skills through repeated independent endoscopic examinations after a GI fellowship. Thus, the KSGE requires training guidelines for fellowships that allow fellows to perform endoscopic examinations without a supervisor. This document is intended to provide the principles that the Committee of Education and Training of KSGE can use to develop practical guidelines for granting privileges to perform accurate GI endoscopy safely. KSGE will contribute to improving the quality of GI endoscopy by providing guidelines for fellowships and supervisors.
