About the FUSE Program

The Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons (SAGES) has developed an online didactic program on the Fundamental Use of Surgical EnergyTM (FUSE).

Fundamental Use of Surgical EnergyTM (FUSE)

FUSE, is an educational program comprised of an interactive web-based multimedia-enhanced didactic curriculum and an online multiple choice cognitive exam. The program is being designed to certify that a successful candidate has the demonstrated knowledge fundamental to the safe use of surgical energy-based devices in the operating room, endoscopic suite and other procedural areas.


Exam Beta Testing

The objective of this study is to beta test a series of questions developed by the SAGES FUSE Task Force to assess knowledge of the principles associated with the use of electrosurgery in the operating room (OR), after review of the online FUSE course.
