ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study that explores whether 100 procedures are enough to achieve competence in colonoscopy with prospective assessment of a trainee's acquisition of competence, and evaluation of impact of training on colonoscopy service. Joint Advisory Group (JAG) guidelines suggest that trainees should achieve 90% caecal and 50% ileal intubation rates after a year of training and 100 colonoscopies. JAG guidelines seriously underestimate the number of procedures required to reach minimum competence threshold.

    The utility of routine ileoscopy as a component of screening colonoscopy is unclear. Many endoscopists believe that routine intubation of the terminal ileum is a requirement for a full-screening colonoscopy. The authors have hypothesized that routine ileal intubation during screening colonoscopy...
