In-Person Hands-On Practice:

Following completing of our online introductory course, this live, in-person FEES Training Course is the next step in your journey toward FEES competency. We will go over a FEES protocol in detail and teach you how to perform FEES. You will learn how to pass the endoscope utilizing good body mechanics, achieving ideal pre-swallow and post-swallow views. We will discuss tips for tricky scope passes and suggestions for improving the comfort of your patient. Our instructors will mentor and supervise you completing a minimum of 15 normal scope passes. Our course instructors have been deemed competent for supervision and training in FEES by board certified Otolaryngologists. Time is spent reviewing FEES exams to begin fine tuning those FEES interpretation skills.
