Online Colon Capsule Reading Course>

Capsule type: PillCam Colon

Reading software: PillCam Web Software v9.0

Who is this course designed for?

You may be a doctor or a specialist nurse with experience of small bowel (SB) capsule reading but wanting to become a certified colon capsule reader.

If you have first hand experience of endoscopy or previous SB capsule reading experience, you will need to find 50 hours of training time to complete this course.

UPDATE: The COVID-19 crisis has had a considerable impact on endoscopy waiting times. Colon capsule is seen as one way out of the crisis, especially for urgent referrals. A colon capsule passes through the oesophagus, stomach and small bowel, therefore readers must be aware of the pathology that they could witness as the capsule proceeds to the colon.

Candidates for the Colon Capsule Reading Course should have experience of Small Bowel capsule reading or consider first completing the SB Capsule Reading Course.

What you will get out of it:

Successful completion will lead to the award of the IMIGe Certificate of Completion – Colon.

Approved by the Federation of the Royal College of Physicians UK for 30 external (category 1) CPD credits.
