Core Subjects 

Saturday, April 30, 5:00 - 6:30 pm

CME Credit Hours: 1.5

Maintaining proficiency across a wide array of conditions can be challenging for practicing surgeons particularly when advanced technologies and treatment options are rapidly changing.  The Core Subject topics are presented to provide expertise and a framework to explore the current understanding of a particular topic for surgeons seeking the opportunity to add to their knowledge base in critical areas and/or those conditions that are not seen routinely.


At the conclusion of this session, participants should be able to:

  1. Describe the evaluation, management options, and complications associated with perirectal abscesses and fistula
  2. Explore updates in screening and surveillance guidelines and survivorship for colorectal cancer
  3. Identify the complications and strategies for the management of ostomies
  4. Review the literature for the current medical management of inflammatory bowel disease and its impact on surgery
