ESCP has a close relationship with the ASCRS, and welcomes its President to our scientific meeting each year for the ASCRS Lecture. We also have a reciprocal opportunity where Visiting Fellows from both our countries attend and present at our annual meetings.
ESCP also has a close relationship with the EBSQ, Division of Coloproctology, and is represented in their committee. Surgeons can take the EBSQ examination in coloproctology at our annual scientific meeting.
ESCP is affiliated to ESSO, the umbrella organisation for all cancer surgeons in Europe. Our members benefit from discounted registration rates for ESSO Congress, ESSO courses and the European Multidisciplinary Cancer congress, as well as access to the ESSO training fellowship scheme.
We have close ties with the ICF whose popular forum on colorectal issues, including clinical case study presentations, is hosted annually.
ESCP is very pleased to have had a reciprocal Travelling Fellowship with the JSCP since 2008.
ESCP participates in the triennial Tripartite Colorectal meeting along with the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, the Colorectal Society of Australasia and New Zealand, the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland and the Section of Coloproctology of the Royal Society of Medicine.
As the specialist association representing coloproctology in Europe, ESCP is a privileged body within UEG. We participate in its scientific and educational activities and partner in the UEG annual meeting.
