Study Summary

This trial is testing whether it is better for medical students to learn how to do a colonoscopy by practicing on a simulator twice with no supervision and then being supervised while doing it twice, or the reverse.

Who is the study for?
This trial is for trainees in adult and pediatric gastroenterology fellowships, as well as general surgery residencies at the University of Oklahoma Health Sciences Center. Participants must consent to join and will provide demographic information.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The study tests if supervision during endoscopy simulation training affects learning outcomes. Trainees are randomly assigned to start with either supervised or unsupervised colonoscopy modules before switching to the other type.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
Since this trial involves educational supervision rather than medical treatment, there are no direct physical side effects. However, participants may experience varying levels of stress or anxiety related to performance.
