The Training Certificate in coloproctology was established as evidence that a surgeon has successfully completed a structured program in coloproctology. With the certificate, the candidate is eligible to take the exam of the European Board of Surgery in coloproctology (EBSQ/Coloproct).
Members of the ACP may apply for a Training Certificate.
This extra-occupational specialisation takes at least 3 years and can be begun at any time. The required theoretical and practical components given below can be completed at the individual’s convenience.
- Basic courses for 8 to 10 participants are offered at various centres in Austria and conclude with an examination
- A candidate must present a log of operations proving competence in basic and advanced proctological procedures
- Visiting physicianships and participation in specialized investigations

A variety of rotations and electives in different institutions should provide the candidate with a broad view of coloproctology.
The Society wishes you success and fulfilment in the practice of coloproctology.
