The 2021 American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons Annual Scientific Meeting will take place April 24-28, 2021. As part of ASCRS commitment to the health and safety of the general public, their members, partners and meeting attendees, it was decided to transition to an exclusively virtual meeting. This scientific program is designed to provide surgeons with in-depth and up-to-date knowledge relative to surgery for diseases of the colon, rectum and anus with emphasis on patient care, teaching and research.

The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) 2020 Scientific Meeting has been cancelled. As the result of the increasingly devastating effects of the global COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, the Executive Committee of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons has concluded that it is not possible to hold the 2020 Annual Meeting originally scheduled for June 6-10, 2020, in Boston. Thus, the meeting has been cancelled.
Protecting the health, safety, and well-being of our members, attendees, patients and families was paramount in us making this decision. Simply put, our physicians are, and will continue to be, needed in their local communities to address the needs of their patients in this time of crisis. Due to the limited number of faculty and other related factors, we are no longer able to host the high-caliber meeting that our attendees and exhibitors have come to expect.
The 8th Annual Chicago Colorectal Symposium is a city-wide educational event for colorectal surgeons, general surgeons, fellows, residents, research associates and allied health professionals with an interest in colon and rectal surgery. The program includes a series of dynamic presentations from renowned faculty and surgeons, and offers both didactic and hands-on courses. This year’s Symposium will be held on March 14th at the Loews Chicago Hotel. CLICK HERE to learn more.
