On 21 Nov 2013Belgrade, Serbia hosted the ESCP's 8th Scientific Meeting in September. Eight pre-congress placements were made available for fellows / senior trainees in coloproctology at six centres of excellence prior to the meeting. The host centres welcomed seven senior trainees for two days prior to the congress, allowing them to participate in the Centre’s day to day clinical activities.
On 4 Nov 2013It was my great honor and pleasure to have this exceptional opportunity for the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) Japanese visiting fellowship. My heartbeat actually increased rapidly when I received the decision letter from the Japanese Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) accepting the travelling fellowship. Planning the visiting schedules and picturing myself travelling in Europe even accelerated my scientific concerns in the field of coloproctology in daily practice. This fellowship allowed me to visit up to 3 academic institutes in Europe, followed by attending the annual meeting in conjunction with an original paper presentation.
