The Association of Program Directors for Colon and Rectal Surgery (APDCRS) has introduced a standardized letter of recommendation form for applicants to our fellowships. 

If you are asked to write a Letter of Recommendation on behalf of an applicant, the applicant will submit this form to you via ERAS (Electronic Residency Application Service).  You will also have the opportunity to write any additional commentary on this form, though it is not required. 

New laws have just gone into effect, and we don't want you to miss out.
