The ASCRS Clinical Committees were created, in part, to serve as a source to disseminate important, timely information on topics relating to each of their subspecialties. The Clinical Committees (CCs) are extremely active within the organization, creating and delivering specialized symposia, conducting surveys, as well as identifying and developing resources for the membership. On this portion of our website, you will find white papers, position papers, and guidelines created by our CCs and Task Forces on a variety of topics.
