Fundamentals in Urology (2020)

Philadelphia, PA US
June 12, 2020 to June 14, 2020

Important Update:

It is with deep regret that we inform you of the cancellation of the 2020 Fundamentals in Urology Course scheduled for June 12-14 in Philadelphia, PA. Over the past several months, the AUA has been closely monitoring COVID-19 and its potential impact on our courses and events. We recognize with many institutions restricting travel, as well as the more pressing health and safety concerns associated with this pandemic, it is no longer practical to continue with this course. Your health, safety and well-being is of the utmost importance to us.

As an opportunity to provide you with an educational offering from Fundamentals in Urology, we would like to extend the webcast of the 2019 Fundamentals in Urology course to you for $25 – this is a savings of $500. This offer is available until July 1.

If you have already registered for this course, we will contact you directly regarding your registration.  If you have additional questions, please contact Education@auanet.org.

 

Essential Urology for You Fundamentals in Urology 2020

Course Directors:  Tracey Krupski, MD and Jay D. Raman, MD

AUA's Fundamentals in Urology course is designed to apply basic science knowledge and principles in development of treatment algorithms. This course will provide attendees with valuable skills in developing a rational methodological approach to application of knowledge which will contribute to positive outcomes for patients. Attendees will discover the importance of the study of basic sciences and how it transfers into the lifelong learning process and medical practice. This course is designed to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the "why" behind a broad expanse of general urologic conditions. A thorough knowledge of the basic science behind the treatments will allow for better counseling and education of patients by all clinical urologic practitioners. New for 2020, a half-day program has been added specifically for Advanced Practice Providers (APP’s).
