Abstract

The Questionnaire on the Education and Training System for Female Trainee Endoscopists was sent to 4,281 female members of the Japan Gastroenterological Endoscopy Society. Only 169 members filled out the questionnaire. Fourteen percent of the respondents have taken continuing education and training courses. For female trainee endoscopists, it is difficult to attend continuing education and training courses due to family obligations. Opportunities to attend continuing education and training courses that provide a support structure for female endoscopists have to be increased in Japan.
