The University of East Anglia are offering an online Masters in Coloproctology course through the University of East Anglia for UK trainees. The feedback has been positive with two of the SpRs commenting that it helped them with both the exit exam and EBSQ exam – one of the students got the highest mark in their sitting of the EBSQ.

The course is completely online and starts in January. There are 4 clinical modules – Colorectal emergencies / Neoplasia / Inflammatory bowel disease / Proctology & Functional bowel disease – plus modules in research and management. Each module last 16 weeks. Single modules can be completed for CME/CPD purposes, 3 modules for a Postgraduate Certificate, 6 modules for a Postgraduate Diploma or 6 modules + dissertation for the full MS Coloproctology.
