ESD Proctorship


The Olympus Proctorship Training Program focuses on expanding the physician’s understanding of the clinical application of Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection and the safe and effective use of the Olympus ESD device portfolio. The proctorship provides gastroenterologists trained in Endoscopic Submucosal Dissection the opportunity to perform live ESD procedures at their facility under the tutelage of a visiting ESD expert. Visiting faculty will serve in a purely observational role.
