The Department of Colon and Rectal Surgery presents several Educational Courses and Symposiums. Activities include the Annual Patrick Hanley Colorectal Surgery Symposium: Pathology, Radiology, Physiological Testing. Presented each Spring, this course is a comprehensive review of Colorectal Pathology, Radiology, and Physiological Testing for surgeons, gastroenterologists, and colorectal specialists. Using extensive audiovisual aids, the faculty will review major and significant colorectal disease processes to strengthen participants knowledge for clinical practice of colorectal surgery. The course will be conducted classroom-style, and its size will be limited to maximize educational opportunity of every participant. A course video will be available participants. The Ochsner Clinic Foundation designates this continuing medical education activity for a maximum of 8 credit hours in Category 1 towards the AMA Physician's Recognition Award.
