Join us for the prestigious John of Arderne Prize for a chance to hear surgical trainees and medical students present their colorectal research papers, followed by the annual Presidential Address.

Participants will be able to improve their skills in critiquing research methodology and appraising research methods. This will also be an opportunity to demonstrate improved knowledge of the described advances in coloproctology. 

The prize meeting will be followed by the Presidential Address with RSM's President-Elect, Professor Steven Brown. Professor Brown is a consultant colorectal surgeon at the Northern General Hospital in Sheffield

Learning objectives include:

  • Give trainees a national forum in which to disseminate new research
  • Give an educational update in the practice of coloproctology
