The colorectal surgery team provides many opportunities for students of all levels to participate in research. 

Our research team is partnered with UBC Science’s Co-Op program. Students from UBC are selected and trained to be clinical research assistants, working with our staff to help manage our various studies. 

For more information on the Co-Op program at UBC, please click here.

Each Co-Op student will complete projects during their time with the colorectal surgery team. Below, you can find some examples of such projects. 

In addition, this very website is a Co-Op project.
