Do general surgery residency programs adequately train surgeons to perform anorectal surgery ?
The management of anorectal disease remains a major component in the practice of the general surgeon.
To assess the adequacy of general surgery residencies in addressing this educational need, data were obtained from the Residency Review Committee (RRC) for surgery on the anorectal experience of all graduating residents in accredited United States programs for a recent five-year period (1987-1991).
The mean number of anorectal procedures in which a resident participated throughout the residency was 30.0 This is then further subdivided by type of procedure.
It is concluded that general surgery residency programs tend to provide an inadequate training experience in anorectal surgery.
