Mayo Clinic


Louis A. Buie, former President of the American Proctologic Society and the first editor of Diseases of the Colon and Rectum, started a dedicated section of proctology at Mayo Clinic in 1924. A formal ACGME proctologic training program was initiated in 1955. Along with an identification transition from the American Proctologic Society to the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons, the proctologic training program became recognized as a colon and rectal surgery residency program in 1978, and has been in continual existence since. In addition to the accredited categorical ACGME training program an international colon and rectal surgery fellowship was started in 1985. Since 1955 Mayo Clinic has trained 169 colon and rectal surgeons from all over the world.
