As part of the initiative to establish a more clearly defined group within ESCP for younger surgeons, a meeting took place at this year’s congress in Milan. The session comprised a brief introduction by ESCP (now past) President Stefan Post and Secretary Eloy Espin, followed by a lot of interactive discussion about how the Society can best serve its younger members. Those present were able to register their interest in specific areas (for example, membership development, research and education initiatives). See below the summary of outcomes – and if you weren’t there and would like to get involved, there’s an invitation for you to submit today!

It 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.

I 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.
