The Thompson Endoscopic Skills Trainer (TEST) is a portable training tool designed to assess and improve endoscopic skills. The first of its kind, the TEST is broken up into five task-oriented compartments, each of which develops a particular skill used in endoscopy.
Capable of distinguishing among a wide range of skill levels, from novice to advanced endoscopist, the TEST is a safe, effective, and objective measure of ability. Additionally, as a training tool, the TEST may be used by beginner endoscopists to familiarize themselves with endoscopic maneuvering before proceeding to procedures inside patients, and by more advanced endoscopists to maintain their skills.
