BACKGROUND AND AIMS/OBJECTIVE:The American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy (ASGE) advanced endoscopy fellowship (AEF) match offers a structured application process for AEF training in the United States. Our aim was to describe recent trends in AEF match, trainee experience, and postfellowship employment. METHODS:ASGE AEF match data from 2012 to 2020 were reviewed. Online surveys were sent to advanced endoscopy trainees in 2019 and 2020 to explore their perceptions about AEF training and postfellowship jobs. RESULTS:Data for 2020 showed 19% of matched applicants were women, 55% foreign medical graduates, and 17.5% U.S. visa holders. The number of AEF match applicants increased by 15.6% (90 in 2012 to 104 in 2020) and number of AEF programs increased by 23.5% (51 in 2012 to 63 in 2020). The average applicant match rate was 57% (range, 52.8%-60.6%) and position match rate 87.9% (range, 79.1%-94.6%). Ninety-one percent of trainees (n = 58) rated the quality of their training as very good/excellent; 75% of trainees participated in >300 ERCPs and 64.1% in >300 EUS cases. Seventy percent of trainees reported that advanced endoscopic procedures comprised ≤50% of their procedure volume in their first job, and 71.9% believed it was not easy to find a job after fellowship; however, 97% believed they would make the same decision to pursue AEF training again. CONCLUSIONS:There has been a steady increase in the number of advanced endoscopy applicants and training positions over recent years. Most graduating fellows reported 50% or less of their upcoming clinical practice would involve advanced endoscopic procedures. Future studies are needed to further clarify employment opportunities and personnel needs for advanced endoscopists.

Office of Medical Education: Opportunities for Trainees to Engage and Lead in Curricular Innovation and Reform

Díaz, Débora H Silva; Kothari, Pooja; Williams, Renee L; Lee, Rosa; Mancias, Pedro; Davis, John A; Sánchez, John Paul
Introduction:The AAMC prioritizes promoting a diverse and culturally competent workforce which is thought to have a positive impact on the health of people living in the US. There is a lack of diversity in the current landscape of academic medicine and strategies are needed to effect change. This module introduced undergraduate and graduate medical trainees to leadership skills and opportunities in curriculum innovation and reform by learning about and interacting with the office of medical education (OME) at their institutions. Methods:We implemented a workshop using small-group case discussions and didactics to help medical students and residents learn how to: (1) describe the structure and functions of an OME, (2) describe leadership competencies associated with various roles within the OME, and (3) identify opportunities for trainees to engage with the OME on curricular innovation and reform, especially advancing diversity and inclusion. Results:in identifying leadership opportunities for trainees to become engaged through the OME. There was a statistically significant increase in confidence after the workshop in "discussing an interdisciplinary approach to the creation of a medical education innovation," and, "assessing the need for curricula change." Over 90% of attendees agreed learning objectives were met. Discussion:This workshop succeeded in promoting awareness of the structure and function of OMEs and confidence in seeking opportunities to become engaged in medical education, especially in advancing diversity and inclusion.
