ASCRS Corporate Partnership Philosophy

The American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons (ASCRS) recognizes the indispensable role that healthcare companies play in helping the Society to maintain its focus on colorectal surgery and enhancing the care that its members provide to patients.

As the leading professional organization in this field, the Society acknowledges that collaboration and partnership with industry is important. This cooperation provides sponsors and donors the opportunity to assist the Society with the development of best practices in treating diseases and disorders affecting the colon, rectum and anus, and in turn, helps to increase the visibility of the sponsor’s company and products to physicians involved in colon and rectal patient care.

Support Acknowledgment

ASCRS corporate partners and sponsors receive prominent acknowledgment in a variety of ways depending on the program or event. Acknowledgment typically includes: 

  • Signage at sponsored event
  • Recognition at the podium
  • Listing in the Annual Meeting Program Guide
  • Presentation of a plaque at the opening session of the Scientific Program
  • Corporate or product advertisement in sponsored publications
