Education and training

We aim to provide EUS related educational content, show-casing the role of EUS in various settings. Please feel free to contact us with any useful videos and also any queries, we will be happy to pass it on to the originator of these videos..

UKIEUS aims to promote training of aspiring endosonographers and in conjunction with JAG and BSG, has developed a comprehensive TTT in EUS programme which will enable the trainers to impart training in a familiar evidence based format.

Please use the JAG formative DOPS form to assess, feedback and chart the progress of trainees.
