Colon and Rectal Surgery overview

The Colon and Rectal Surgery Section encourages training and research in Colon and Rectal Surgery. The high standard of surgical expertise in Colorectal Surgery is fostered and maintained through a close working relationship with the Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ). The College training program for the specialty is collaboration between the Section of Colon and Rectal Surgery and the CSSANZ, and has been since Colorectal Surgery was established as a sub-specialty.
