These cases included common bile duct stones, biliary strictures, pancreatic pseudocyst, early gastric cancer, colon large polyps. achalasia, refractory constipation, etc. The endoscopic techniques performed included endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography (ERCP), endoscopic sphincterotomy (EST), fine needle aspiration (FNA), per oral endoscopic myotomy (POEM), endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), polypectomy, and endoscopic delivery of fecal microbiota extract. In the case discussion session, sev-eral cases involving hepatic blood ves-sels (including Budd-Chiari syndrome and portal vein thrombosis) were presented along with a demonstration of how modern transjugular intra-hepatic portosystemic shunts (TIPS) techniques can be used to reconstruct the obstructed vessels and relieve symptoms. During lunch time and at the end of the course the trainees visited the endoscopy center and interventional center. At the end of the course all trainees took a questionnaire to score the performance of every lecture from XJHDD and to give their com-ments and advice on the course. On the questionnaire each trainee was asked to give four votes for the best four lecturers in their opinion. The scoring system is based on the votes each lecturer gets and is used as a tool to evaluate the performance of his or her presentation. The lecturer who gets the fewest votes will be put on probation and a new lecturer will replace him/her in the future classes. Finally every participant was awarded a certificate endorsed by the WGO-Xijing Training Center and signed by its Director, Prof. Kaichun Wu.
