ASGE STAR Barrett's Endotherapy Program

ASGE STAR Barrett's Endotherapy Program
Led by Course Directors Sri Komanduri, MD, MS, FASGE, Northwestern Medical and Vani Konda, MD, FASGE, Baylor University Medical Center. The Barrett's Endotherapy STAR Certificate Program is designed to specifically teach core knowledge and motor skills in Barrett's endotherapy through case-based video sessions and intensive, standardized hands-on training. Immediately following the live components, all participants will complete a post-test, as well as a one-on-one assessment of a standardized checklist of skills. The Certificate of Completion will be awarded to those participants who meet the passing standard for both post-test and the assessment components.


Upon completion of this educational activity, participants will be able to:

Identify and describe the morphology of large or complex lesions of the tubular esophagus and gastric cardia and determine whether the use of endoscopic ablation is appropriate and feasible

• Select and demonstrate the detailed, step-by-step use of techniques in Barrett’s ablation (including RFA and Cryotherapy)

• Select and demonstrate the detailed, step-by-step use of band-ligation mucosal resection before or after Barrett’s Ablation

• Demonstrate the use of techniques and endoscopic accessories for management of ablation- associated adverse events

• Select appropriate surveillance intervals for post- ablation endoscopy, based on current guidelines.



This program targets practicing physicians who seek to advance their endoscopy practice and skills in Barrett’s Endotherapy.
