This on-demand teaching session is perfect for medical professionals looking to learn more about surgery for colorectal trainees! Learn about the job of a general surgeon with a pediatric interest, the resources and services needed, the elective and emergency surgeries performed, and get a firsthand account of pediatric surgeries in a small to medium sized DGH. Hear from someone who has trained to perform Antegrade Colon Enemas and Pyloric Stenosis, even though those surgeries aren’t necessary in their position. This is a great opportunity to learn about the career and the exams required, as well as what to do with malformations and anomalies referred to the clinic.
