Annual Review Course (2020)

December 3, 2020 to December 5, 2020

Notice Regarding the Status of the AUA Annual Review Course (October 15, 2020)

Given the persistent surges and unknowns of COVID-19 and, in an effort to minimize any risk to the safety, health and well-being of all meeting participants, the 2020 Annual Review Course will now take place as a Live Virtual Course. The Live Virtual Annual Review Course will still take place over the scheduled dates of December 3-5, 2020 and will include live lectures, Q&A with expert faculty, interaction among peers as well as audience participation.

Hotel: If you have made reservations at the Hyatt Regency Austin within the AUA Block, your reservation will automatically be cancelled. You do not need to take any further action at this time. (If you booked outside the block or at another hotel, you will need to cancel your reservations.)

The AUA sincerely thanks you for your patience and understanding and remains committed to providing valuable education for your exam preparation.


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.
