Don't miss the Hands-on Skills Training, an intensive course designed specifically for the first- and second-year resident that includes several clinical scenarios that the urologic intern may find themselves encountering in real life.

This is a great complement to the two-day didactic course!

The Hands-on Skills Training will be a half day session with expert urologists, dedicated to resident education, to guide participants who want to gain comfort with performing basic:

  • Catheterization

  • Endoscopy

  • Priapism

  • Ultrasound

This training will provide the urologic intern valuable experience in a controlled setting before they are encountered in the emergency room, wards, or OR.
