Formatted Abstract/Summary
Virtual reality colonoscopy simulators have been validated for colonoscopy training, however there has been no attempt to validate a synthetic physical model simulator. The aim of this study was to establish the construct validity for a physical model colonoscopy simulator as an assessment tool.

Conclusions These findings provide support for the validity of the Kyoto Kagaku physical model. This simulator can distinguish between experienced and novice colonoscopists on various performance measures across cases of varying levels of diffi culty. Further research is needed to evaluate the role of physical model simulators in colonoscopy training and performance assessment.
