Core Tip An additional, optional year of endoscopic-retrograde-cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) training was added because of limited ERCP exposure during standard-three-year-gastrointestinal-fellowships and its greater endoscopic technical difficulty. Yet, many graduates from standard-three-year-fellowships intensely pursue ERCP privileges despite inadequate numbers of ERCPs, or low successful duct cannulation rates. Hospital credentialing committees have sometimes disregarded recommended ERCP credentialing guidelines. Consequently, some gastroenterologists learn ERCP ‘on the job’ after completing standard fellowships during unsupervised practice. National, mandatory, standards for ERCP are advocated, including number (≥ 200-250) of performed ERCPs, and ≥ 85%-90% successful cannulation rate. An independent entity should oversee ERCP credentialing to prevent politicking within hospital committees.
