On 23 Jan 2017In November of 2016, I had the great honour of travelling to Japan as an ESCP Japan travelling fellow. This is a prestigious annual fellowship, established in recognition of the history and friendship between the European and Japanese societies.
On 9 Dec 2016Richard Brady, ESCP Communications Committee, was delighted to speak with consultant gastroenterologist Dr Simon Gabe about the management of high output stoma as part of our focus on Intestinal Failure throughout the month of December.
On 30 Nov 2016It was a great honour for me to be selected as the Japanese Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) travelling fellow for the ESCP meeting in 2016. I would like to express my gratitude to the ESCP for the privilege of being granted a three-week fellowship. All my meetings with great European surgeons during this fellowship were fascinating and important experiences for my surgical career.
On 17 Nov 2016I was very fortunate and honoured to be selected as the first ESCP exchange fellow with the Korean Society of Coloproctology. I applied for this fellowship as this allowed me to attend a large Asian colorectal meeting, observe surgical techniques less applied in Europe, like complete mesocolic excision with (D3) central vascular ligation, and to get to know a different health care system, working environment and (professional) culture.
On 8 Nov 2016From November, ESCP will be highlighting key areas in coloproctology and focusing on a different area each month. By focussing on specific topics, we are encouraging experts to engage with us as well as providing a valuable tool for trainees/students interested in a specific area.
