A significant step forward was possible this year when the Education and Training Committee were able to announce the availability of 3-month fellowships, made possible through the generosity of both Medtronic and Covidien, both already loyal major supporters of the Society at the annual meeting each year, but who have now also provided an educational grant to enable a total of 11 ESCP Fellows to take up an excellent opportunity to train abroad.

I feel honored and extremely fortunate to have won the British Journal of Surgery Prize for my free paper entitled 'Electroacupuncture for Postoperative Ileus after Laparoscopic Colorectal Surgery: A Randomized Sham-Controlled Study' presented on 22 September 2011 at the European Society of Coloproctology (ESCP) Annual Scientific Meeting in Copenhagen, Denmark.

It was a great honour to be selected as the recipient of the 2011 ESCP Japan Travelling Fellow. This allowed me to spend a week at the world renowned National Cancer Centre (NCC) in Tokyo before attending the 66th Japan Society of Coloproctology (JSCP) meeting in Tokyo. During my research years in London, I had read many high quality scientific journals from Japan and had hoped that one day I would be able to visit and observe the Japanese health system.

It was a great honour in my life to have a chance to attend this ESCP meeting in Copenhagen. I would like to represent my sincere gratitude to Prof. O’Connell. He instructed me to make a proper rotation in EU area. Firstly I visited St. Marks Hospital in London. Prof. Phillips and Dr Saunders gave me a precious opportunity looking at operation and endoscopy. At the ESCP meeting Prof. O’Connell encouraged me with his enthusiasm after I expressed Japanese gratitude to all of the people in the European society in terms of the earthquake tragedy on March 11.

With generous help from Medtronic, ESCP will be providing financial support for fellowships during 2012. The fellowships will each be for a 3 month period and aim to assist European surgeons currently training in coloproctology. ESCP aims to support five fellowships during the first half of 2012: four fellowships at a pelvic floor unit one fellowship at either a colorectal cancer, laparoscopic surgery, proctology or inflammatory bowel disease unit. Applications from Training Units are now closed.
