FES

The Fundamentals of Endoscopic Surgery (FES) Program is a test of knowledge and skills in flexible gastrointestinal (GI) endoscopy. FES is the flexible endoscopy equivalent of the Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery™ (FLS) Program developed by SAGES.

FES is designed to set a benchmark for the knowledge and skills required to form a foundation for the practice of flexible GI endoscopy.

The FES program is comprised of two components:

  • An interactive web-based multimedia-enhanced didactic curriculum
  • A validated assessment program that is web-based for evaluating knowledge and judgment, and uses a virtual reality platform to evaluate fundamental technical skills
