Increasing Exposure to Inflammatory Bowel Diseases Education in Gastroenterology Fellowship: The Pilot IBD 101 Experience.

BACKGROUND: Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) management has become increasingly complex, and education varies across fellowship programs. IBD 101 was designed to introduce first-year gastroenterology (GI) fellows to IBD care and training.

METHODS: In 2019, a cohort of fellows participated in a 1-day course with small group learning and group observed structured clinical examinations. Pre- and postcourse surveys were administered to evaluate the course. To assess the long-term impact, surveys were emailed in May 2022 to all third-year fellows from previously participating programs. The primary outcome was comfort managing IBD scenarios and information regarding each fellow's exposure to IBD education.

RESULTS: Fifty-five fellows from 32 programs participated. A total of 49 (89%) of 55 completed pre- and postcourse surveys. All fellows agreed that the course content was appropriate. In the postcourse survey, all fellows reported increased comfort managing IBD patients. Ninety-six percent of attendees stated that they would strongly recommend this course. Thirty-six fellows completed surveys in 2022, 21 (58%) attendees and 15 (42%) nonattendees. Attendees reported equivalent or higher levels of comfort compared with nonattendees. Higher global competence was noted among attendees (odds ratio, 5.21; 95% confidence interval, 0.91-29.9; P = .06) after adjusting for presence of a local IBD specialist, number of IBD patients seen monthly (≤5 vs >5), and rotation through an IBD service.

CONCLUSIONS: IBD 101, an introductory course for first-year GI trainees, was associated with increased comfort managing IBD with a durable benefit independent of individual access to IBD education. Continuation of this program will further enhance the IBD education of future GI fellows.
