lls in a standardized and measurable way. The benefits of such a tool would allow continuous monitoring of a trainee's ongoing progress and the establishment of normal learning curves for trainees," said study lead author Robert E. Sedlack, MD, MHPE, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. "The MCSAT form addresses this need and provides a valid means to objectively assess individual cognitive and motor skills in a continuous manner throughout colonoscopy training. The resultant data can eventually be used to establish average learning curves in colonoscopic skills and define competency thresholds based on performance scores."

Methods

The study was conducted at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn., routine outpatient endoscopy suites from July 2007 through May 2010. Study participants included all gastroenterology fellows performing colonoscopy as part of their training during this period. The study is primarily a descriptive report of the development of a novel colonoscopy skills assessment tool (MCSAT) and prospective evaluation of the data obtained from the use of this form for the purpose of tool validation.

After the process of MCSAT form development, teaching staff were requested to complete a MCSAT form assessing fellow performance of every colonoscopy performed in the routine outpatient endoscopy suites. The procedures performed in this area were primarily routine screening examinations. With the goal of this form intended to focus on assessing the minimal procedural skills required to be competent to perform routine colonoscopies, procedures performed in the therapeutic or "complex" endoscopy suites were excluded from this analysis because these tend to be much longer cases with more difficult anatomy. (The form is available on www.giejournal.org.)

To develop the assessment tool, the core skills of colonoscopy were identified and then a means to accurately and reliably measure each of th
