Background Although there are guidelines for video capsule endoscopy (VCE) and device-assisted enteroscopy (DAE), little is known about fellowship training in these technologies. Aims The aims were to better characterize current small bowel endoscopy training in 3-year GI fellowship programs and 4th-year advanced endoscopy programs in the U.S. Methods We developed an online multiple-choice survey to assess current GI fellowship program training in small bowel endoscopy. The survey was distributed via email to GI fellowship program directors in the U.S. Results Of the 168 program directors contacted, 59 responded (response rate = 35.1%). There was no statistically significant difference in the availability of VCE or DAE between respondents and non-respondents. VCE training was universally avail - able in 3-year training programs, with 84.8% (50/59) requiring it for fellows. The majority of 3-year GI fellows graduated with independence in VCE: 83.1% (49/59) of programs reported “most” or “all” graduates were able to read independently. DAE techniques were available in 86.4% of training programs (51/59). Training in DAE was more limited and shared between 3-year and 4th-year programs: 12.1% (7/58) of 3-year programs required training in DAE and 22.9% (8/35) of 4th-year programs required training in DAE. Conclusions Training in VCE
