These Video/Audio files are stored “in the cloud” so you can stream them anywhere, anytime, as long as you have an internet connection, watch or listen to on your phone, computer, or tablet – your learning experience is almost like being at the live activity, but without travel costs and time away from your practice. Included with each online review is a downloadable copy of the syllabus that corresponds to the Video/Audio lectures for your use while viewing or as a free-standing study or clinical practice guide.

This comprehensive review is designed to help you pass your Colorectal Surgery exams as well as to update your clinical knowledge-base. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, current best practices concepts, testing and treatment approaches and clinical follow-up strategies. As a result, the course provides the perfect review for your Colorectal Surgery exams as well as providing valuable insights and practical tips that you can immediately  incorporate into your practice.  Many of our previous learners found the review provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principle areas covered by colorectal surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for further study.
