The topics that will be covered over the next three years are:
|Anal fistula||Early rectal cancer||Colonic cancer|
|Colonic polyps||Ulcerative colitis||Advanced malignancy|
|Crohn’s disease||Haemorrhoids||Intestinal failure|

The programme has been developed by ACPGBI’s Education & Training Committee, chaired by Laura Hancock, to meet the essential continuing professional development needs of consultants, but all are welcome to attend.
