Advanced Coloproctology Course #ACC2024
Dates for your diary 20-21 March 2024
The Advanced Coloproctology Course has been running successfully for 30 years. Due to the phenomenal feedback on the course’s interactive online format we are pleased to offer the 2024 course once again via the Sayso Medical Platform.
ACC has a carefully planned programme to provide an update on current issues with an overview of the latest evidence whilst also aiming to provide practical tips and discussion. The programme is mapped to the ISCP curriculum to focus on the information needed for surgical trainees to pass their FRCS examination. The format of short presentations followed by panel discussions works well to keep those joining engaged.
Aimed at trainees, consultants and anyone working in the multidisciplinary team looking for an update.
The interactive nature of the course is a great feature for those who attend live. The online audience can send in questions for the panel discussions and participate in online polls. Faculty members sit behind the scenes to try to answer questions live via the chat box function as well as posting relevant links to guidelines, evidence and resources.
The course begins each morning with a viva workshop! Trainees can volunteer to attend mock FRCS examination vivas and get real-time feedback on their performance. We are always very grateful to trainees who volunteer to do this! These sessions are valuable to trainees at all stages of their career and, for those who have already successfully completed the exam, is a good opportunity to review hot topics and consider how they might support the next generation of trainees.
The course is available On Demand until we approach the 2025 course. The interactive features are only available for the live course so we would encourage live participation where possible. We do not record the viva workshops out of consideration for the brave viva volunteers!
Exciting planning is taking place right now for next year’s course!
