Endoscopy Asia is equipped with state of the art equipment infrastructure in flexible Endoscopy, Interventional Radiology with full DSA capabilities, Audio-Visual and Communication Infrastructure.

As most are aware, Dr Rathod has done pioneering work in the field of Endoscopic Ultrasound and other Advanced Endoscopic procedures in India and this part of Asia, becomes an obvious choice due to his vast experience of over 18,000 EUS procedures. It is perhaps one of the largest individual experience of EUS in India and this part of Asia. He has also performed an equal number of advanced diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopic procedures, including advanced ERCP. He also had the opportunity to perform the first EUS-FNA in India and this part of Asia, thereby pioneering Interventional EUS procedures.

This vast experience, coupled with large digital video archives of over 8500 EUS / ERCP / FNA case capsules make a unique blend of world class experience, expertise and course material.

Several colleagues, Fellows to Professors from India and all over the world have immensely benefited from preceptorship with Dr Rathod over the last decade. Therefore, a dedicated National and International Endoscopy Fellowship Program has been designed at Endoscopy Asia to optimize the training potential of all aspiring Gastroenterologists and Endoscopists.

Endoscopy Asia also offers a fellowship program for candidates who aspire to have a career in the field of Gastrointestinal & Hepato-Pancreatico-Biliary Endoscopy, which will span over a minimum of 2 weeks / months depending on the interest and requirement of each individual.

We also have a long term (1-2 year) fellowship position, for candidates who aspire to have a career in Endoscopy. The course material for long term trainees will comprise of digital and print material, case studies, references, didactic lectures and group discussions, apart from online CME for the enrolled trainees.

Our philosophy of training programme encompasses ‘Concepts to Clinics’, and this dimension is exemplified in our approach to one on one interaction and personalized in vivo and in vitro hands-on supervised preceptorship on simulators and phantoms.
