About this event

  • Date and time Wed 23 Oct 2019 from 2:30pm to 7:15pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Coloproctology

Join us for the annual presidential address 'Aiming for GOLD' and the chance to listen to original colorectal research papers submitted by surgical trainees and medical students for the Coloproctology Section: John of Arderne prize. This half-day meeting is a celebration of trainee and student research and collaborative working in coloproctology. 

The medal award will be followed by the presidential address. RSM's new Coloproctology Section President for 2019-20, Helen Chave, will talk us through her experiences in colorectal surgery, her fascinating career-path and the role the RSM has played for her along the way. Prior to her career as a Consultant Colorectal Surgeon, Chave was part of Great Britain's Olympic Archery team. She draws parallels between the two careers with the theme of aiming for gold in care, looking at patient-centred and best evidence-based care. She will also outline the details of the academic programme for the year.

Presidential dinner

We invite delegates and guests to join us for the presidential dinner following the meeting.
