Proctology and functional bowel disorders

Norwich Medical School – Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences


This 16 week, 7 topic module, will enrich participants in all aspects of proctology and pelvic floor disorders. While the proctology part will help candidates reflecting and analysing their day to day practice of common ano-rectal conditions the functional bowel component will challenge and develop their management of complex scenarios encountered in colorectal practice.

The problem based scenarios are discussed on interactive forums and mediated by expert clinicians to promote application of evidence based knowledge to clinical practice.

The course delivery is underpinned by adult educational learning theories to promote in depth critical thinking and decision making. Students will be able to compare their management decisions with that of senior clinicians throughout the programme. The ultimate aim of this module is to improve clinical outcomes for patients presenting with Proctology and functional bowel disorders.
