Course Director Development

It is the mission of the AUA Office of Education to provide the highest quality CME to its membership.  Thanks to the contributions of Course Directors and Faculty, the AUA Office of Education is consistently recognized for the exceptional quality of its educational activities. 

AUA Course Directors are chosen for their expertise in urology and a dedication to advancing the knowledge and skills of urologists and the urologic care team worldwide.  We hope that this module can clarify what it means to be a Course Director of an accredited CME educational activity, including:
