Fundamentals in Urology (2021)

June 11, 2021 to June 13, 2021

Essential Urology for You Fundamentals in Urology 2021

Course Directors:  Tracey Krupski, MD, MPH and Nicole Miller, 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 2021, a half-day program has been added specifically for Advanced Practice Providers (APP’s).


Attendees can choose between three options:

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