In 1964 Pedro de la Viesca founded the Spanish proctological society. This was the germ of the actual colorectal society and the vast tradition of colorectal training in Spain.

Juan Garcia Armengol, the actual president of the Spanish colorectal society is taking it to a peak of popularity, and we proudly offer 6 fellowships, and several observerships, cooperation, and investigation grants. Moreover, the advance colorectal unit accreditation guarantees a high quality of colorectal training in Spain.

Colorectal surgical community in Spain is thrilling and it is waiting for you.
