Congratulations to our Dr Alfred Kow for being recognised as one of the recipients for the NUS Annual Teaching Excellence Award winners!
This Annual Teaching Excellence Award serve three important functions in an institution of higher education. First, they recognise teachers who excel in their profession. Second, the awards serve as an indication of the importance the institution accords to teaching. Third, the awards send clear signals to the teaching community about what the institution regards as high quality teaching, i.e. by identifying the results that the institution’s teaching practices aim to strive for.

The theme of “Management of Rectal Cancer” offers a multi-disciplinary discussion on the management of rectal cancer. This symposium will bring together a group of experienced local and foreign colorectal experts to address the challenging aspects of rectal cancer management.
There will also be a pre-symposium laparoscopic cadaveric rectal surgery workshop with surgical approaches including APR, ELAPE, intersphincteric dissection, and distal sacrectomy.
During the symposium, the organiser will review controversial topics and participants will be invited to bring up difficult cases for discussion.
