Osler Colorectal Surgery 2022 Online Review


The Colorectal Surgery Online review is designed to help you pass your exams and update your clinical knowledge base. Emphasis is on evidence-based medicine and board-relevant standards of care, current best practices concepts, testing and treatment approaches, and clinical follow-up strategies. As a result, the course provides the perfect review for your Colorectal Surgery exams and offers valuable insights and practical tips that you can immediately incorporate into your practice. Many of our previous learners found the review provided them with improved diagnostic and planning strategies, a better understanding of the best surgical approaches for the principal areas covered by colorectal surgeons, and helped them recognize areas of weakness for further study.

After this review, each participant should be able to:
– Describe preoperative, operative, and postoperative patient care in the principal component areas of colon and rectal surgery, specifically: benign and malignant conditions of the anus, colon, and rectum.
– Summarize your understanding of the diagnosis and management of patients from all 24 Core Areas of colon and rectal surgery.
– Demonstrate an understanding of the management of postoperative complications following colon and rectal surgical procedures.
– Discuss nonoperative management options of patients, for patients with disorders of the colon, rectum, and anus, including management of patients with intestinal stomas and inflammatory diseases.
– Demonstrate an understanding of colon, rectum, and anus tumors and describe the appropriate surgical and nonsurgical management required for each type of tumor and tumor stage.
– Outline the appropriate use of newer diagnostic and therapeutic methods, including the pre-and peri-operative role of hereditary/genetic testing of colorectal diseases.
