The following program, Implementing the Flexible Endoscopy Curriculum (FEC) into Your Residency Program, has been made available by the Association of Program Directors in Surgery (APDS). It was authored by Andrew Kastenmeier, on behalf of SAGES, for a APDS Workshop held during the 2015 Surgical Education Week Conference.

The goals of the program are to help viewers:

  • understand the requirements of the Flexible Endoscopy Curriculum (FEC),
  • understand the options for providing didactic, simulation, and clinical assessment components of curriculum,
  • understand the mechanisms for tracking resident progress through the curriculum, and
  • understand how the FEC will evolve in the future.
