Annual Review Course (2020)

Austin, TX US
December 3, 2020 to December 5, 2020

Notice Regarding the Status of the AUA Annual Review Course (September 1, 2020)

Thank you for your continued patience as we navigate rescheduling the 2020 AUA Annual Review Course in light of the postponement of the American Board of Urology’s (ABU) Qualifying (Part 1) Exam and the ongoing global COVID-19 health crisis. Please know that the AUA will offer the course – whether that be in-person in Austin or a live virtual course - as we understand the importance of exam preparation for the ABU Part 1 Examination. At this time, we recommend that you save-the-date and register for the course. In the event that the Live Course converts from live in-person to a live virtual course, all registrations will be converted to the live virtual course and no refunds will be issued.  However, given the uncertainty, we recommend that you DO NOT book flights or make travel arrangements.  In light of this, please understand that the AUA will not refund individual airline tickets or travel costs. In  addition, the AUA will not refund hotel costs for arrangements made OUTSIDE of the AUA's Block or housing arrangements booked outside of the AUA Headquarter Hotel.  We will provide another update by early October.


For the American Board of Urology (ABU) Qualifying (Part 1) Examination, residents need to possess basic urologic knowledge. To fulfill this need, the American Urological Association (AUA) developed this course to disseminate current urologic knowledge and prepare residents for the ABU examination. This course is also of interest to practicing urologists preparing for the ABU Life Long Learning Knowledge Assessment as well as others, including allied health professionals, looking for a thorough review of basic urologic topics.


Attendees can choose between three options:

  1. Live Course Only*
  2. Bundle the Live Course Only + Webcast Upgrade - Most Popular Option!*
  3. Webcast Only

*The printed syllabus is only available for Live Course attendees.  It is an add-on and is not included with either the Live Course Only or Webcast Upgrade purchases.

Select our most popular option and bundle the Live Course Only AND Webcast Upgrade for access to the in-person course and the webcast.
