The project is a single center, prospective, randomized controlled trial of colonoscopies performed by GI trainees to determine if cap assisted colonoscopy results in improved technical and quality measures of competency in novice endoscopy trainees. Cap assisted colonoscopy resulted in significant improvement in CIT, ICIR, and overall ACE assessment scores when compared to standard colonoscopy in colonoscopy trainees without prior experience in the first three months of training.
