As the clinical applications of endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) and endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) take more and more root in everyday practice and these endoscopic procedures become increasingly more complex and interventional with a higher chance for complications, the demand for expert bilio-pancreatic endoscopists continues to increase. In response to this growing need, specific postgraduate fellowships have been developed, however the standardization of training programs and the assessment of the achieved competence still remains an open debate. ERCP and EUS competency often requires training beyond the scope of a standard GI fellowship program, which lasts at least 1-2 years, and there are some differences in the way to face the issues of advanced bilio-pancreatic endoscopy training between Europe, America and the Asian regions. Today there is no role for the self-teaching of ERCP and EUS through trial and error without supervision and, in the near future, it is necessary to critically revise current training guidelines, to establish a standardized curriculum for advanced bilio-pancreatic endoscopists and to implement universally validated skill assessment tools, able to ensure constant and targeted feedback to trainees.


KEY WORDS: EUS; ERCP; Training
