The training and education of GI fellows are crucial issues for the training institutions and academic societies. Current circumstances about GI fellows are changing rapidly according to shortage of training period of the internal medicine residency program and growing up of multimedia and web-based education system. Recently, the education board of Korean Society of Gastroenterology revised the educational objectives considering 2 years program of GI fellows. We also need to develop a concrete education program through cooperation with related organizations including the training institutions and academic societies. All of these efforts should be made with the goal of making a good gastroenterologist, not just making an endoscopist.
