The 2021 Advanced Coloproctology Course will take place on: Thursday 13th May | 08:00 - 18:00 Friday 14th May | 08:00 - 15:30
A very warm welcome to the 2021 Advanced Coloproctology course, the flagship educational course of the ACPGBI. This course has been running very successfully for nearly 30 years.
The course has the underlying ethos of delivering a concise summary of everything Colorectal trainees need to know to pass the final FRCS as well as practical tips and updates of clinical issues the jobbing consultant meets on a day to day basis. This provides the busy consultant with a concise method of maintaining and improving their own clinical practice.
The format includes short presentations by a well-chosen faculty who know their subjects and can present fluently. In addition there is generous allocated time for each group of presentations to be discussed on a practical basis and for the audience to engage and virtually grill the speaker panel. A recurring component is the opportunity for the trainees in the audience to participate in mock vivas with real time feedback.
The new virtual format does have the additional advantage of opening the course up to a larger audience. We hope that those who join who have never attended before will appreciate the quality and value of what we will present and consider attending in the future when we may be able to return to a more face to face environment.
Given the expense of our new format we are very grateful for the support from our industry sponsors. Technology again allows easy ways to interact with these sponsors and I strongly urge you to show your appreciation by engaging with as many as you can, both during the course and after. There will be additional incentives to do this!
Recordings of the programme (not including the VIVA workshops) will be available online for a fee of £50 for non-ACPGBI members from the SaySo Platform and for free for ACPGBI members from the ACPGBI members area.
