  1. Improve the performance of pancreatic endotherapy including ERCP and EUS by understanding established indications, contraindications, techniques to optimize success, and minimize adverse events. This includes advanced and alternative methods of bile duct access and to employ therapeutic options of benign and neoplastic lesions in the pancreas and bile duct and implement pancreatoscopy for organ preservation.        

  2. Implement the best endoscopic identification and treatment strategies for patients with pancreatitis, duct strictures and leaks and stones and understand the importance of the role of new techniques and technologies to improve and expand treatment options and enhance patient education of alternatives to minimally invasive and open surgical options.      

  3.  Integrate practice guidelines and expert opinions in the identification and treatment of large colonic polyps and techniques to manage strictures, fistula and leaks to minimize the need for invasive surgery and to focus on colon preservation.                  

  4. Identify the etiology for patients with chronic pancreatitis, and assess pancreatic cyst characteristics that suggest pre-malignant disease and incorporate the most current guidelines for surveillance and when to consider endoscopic ablation or surgical resection.
