Virtual Operating Room Logo

European School of Coloproctology offers education in coloproctology for surgeons at different stages of their professional careers and aims to promote current knowledge and evidence-based practice.

There is an emphasis on improving surgeons’ skills to optimise patient outcomes. Different formats of training activities are being used. The activities are supported by educational grants from our industry partners and other training organisations. ESC/ESCP is responsible for designing the objectives and educational contents of these events.

The 'Virtual visit to ESCP Operating Room' project offers delegates to observe, interact, learn and discuss technical steps in surgery, peri-operative care, decision making and ways of improving outcomes.
