Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand (CSSANZ)
The Colorectal Surgical Society of Australia and New Zealand, also known as CSSANZ. Our Society, which now has 266 members, represents specialist colorectal surgeons in these two countries. Our members have undertaken advanced training in colorectal surgery, and are dedicated to ongoing professional development to maintain their expertise in the diagnosis and management of intestinal and anorectal problems.Most of our members are actively involved in research and teaching and all are committed to maintaining the highest standards in their practice. The Society and its members promote the best evidence-based practice in order to improve the treatment of our patients. We have a close relationship with the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons, and maintain strong links with many other professional organisations, both nationally and internationally.
The CSSANZ Council recommends that any hospital or health service advertising or making an appointment for a colorectal surgeon indicate that a criteria for selection would include: either membership of CSSANZ or having completed the criteria for membership of CSSANZ.
