First, I would like to express my gratitude to the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) for the privilege of granting me a two-week travelling fellowship. My fellowship experiences at Karolinska University Hospital, St. Mark’s Hospital, and Amsterdam Medical Center were both exciting and enlightening. This invaluable experience will have a major impact on my future clinical practice and research content. Indeed, my short stay in Europe will be a memory I will cherish for the rest of my life.

Each year ESCP provides the opportunity for ten young surgeons with an interest in coloproctology to undertake a three-month fellowship in a different country. The 2013/14 fellowships were generously supported by a grant from Medtronic, as well as funds from ESCP. Here, three of the 2014 fellows report on their experiences:

It was my great privilege to have been chosen as the ESCP/JSCP travelling fellow to Japan in 2013.  The fellowship allowed me to fulfil a long-lasting ambition which I had nurtured since many years after listening to the tales of my mentor Prof Bob Steele’s visit to Japan.  My main aims of this fellowship were to specifically observe and expand my learning of sphincter preservation rectal surgery, to experience the technical advances in minimally invasive surgery particularly reduced port surgery, and to interact with academic clinicians and scientists in Japan.
