To improve rectal cancer outcomes, our patients need us to work together in a standardized multidisciplinary approach to their care. 
The goal of FRCS is to be a definitive resource for all surgeons who care for rectal cancer patients, to promote high-quality, evidence-based surgical and perioperative care. The program also meets standard 8.1 for NAPRC hospital accreditation.
This easy-to-access self-paced online program includes plenty of interactive video, images, and illustrations covering background information, preoperative evaluation, intraoperative management and techniques, and postoperative care.
