This ASP aims to provide practitioners with specialist knowledge in lower GI physiology and endoanal ultrasound. Practitioners will be proficient in anorectal physiology testing and endoanal ultrasound, enabling them to practice within a Gastrointestinal Physiology department specialising in lower GI physiology. This course is designed for scientists from other specialisms, nurses and other healthcare professionals who are working in the GI field but have not received formalised training in GI as a specialist area. AGIP support this ASP as a route to accreditation as an independent practitioner to ensure patient safety standards are upheld.
Employer sponsors are responsible for approving the trainee’s enrolment on the programme based on their existing qualifications and experience.
