As of January 15, 2016, the Colorectal Surgery (CRS) Residency Training Program at OSU received initial accreditation from ACGME thus becoming the latest ACGME-accredited surgical residency on campus. We then received Continued Accreditation with the ACGME on April 13th, 2018. The CRS Residency Training Program is a one year curriculum in CRS preparing the trainee for clinical practice whether in an academic setting (research/teaching) or the private sector. This residency follows the completion of an ACGME-accredited General Surgery (GS) Residency Training Program. The expectation is for the trainee to ultimately pass the qualifying and certifying examinations and become a diplomate of both the American Board of Surgery and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery
