The AASLD, ACG, AGA, ANMS, and ASGE, with support from NASPGHAN, have worked together to provide supportive materials for program directors and fellows to enhance assessment of our trainees and to comply with the requirements to submit reporting milestone documentation for each fellow every 6 months. We believe that the 13EPAs identified for GI training with the accompanying toolbox will be an asset for educators and trainees. The OWN Committee respects the autonomy of GI fellowship programs and the creativity and innovation that may relate to faculty talent, institutional resources, and programmatic strengths. We also recognize that there may be opportunities to share creative resources and integrate efforts to resolve needs and challenges. As an example, OWN plans to collate innovative assessment tools created by GI program directors who are willing to share their resources on our Web site. New advances in technology, both in clinical medicine and in education, as well as changing demographics and a changin g health care environment will provide opportunities to define the future direction in GI and hepatology education. Finally, we acknowledge the value of bringing the societiestogether to work toward a common purpose and believe that the EPAs and the toolbox have been enriched as a resource with collaborative multi-society input..
