Intern Academy (2023)

June 10, 2023 to September 20, 2023


The AUA Intern Academy is a new initiative created specifically to meet the needs of early career urology residents (primarily PGY1s) and will include both in-person (Hands-on Skills Training) and virtual components. The aim of the Intern Academy is to apply standardized and foundational urologic skills to the first year of residency practice in order to improve clinical proficiency and promote patient safety.  

Attendees can choose between two options:

  1. Virtual Didactic Series Only
  2. Hands-on Skills Training + Virtual Didactic Series -- Most Popular Option!

The 2-day in-person Hands-on Skills Training will be held on June 10-11, 2023 in Cleveland, Ohio (subject to change). The training includes several clinical scenarios that the urologic intern may find themselves encountering in real life. It includes six critical stations that will serve to provide the urologic intern with valuable experience in a controlled setting before they are encountered in the emergency room, ward, or operating room. The Hands-on Skills Training consists of 6 critical urologic skills stations focusing on catheters, endoscopy, surgical skills, priapism, ultrasound, and communication skills.

The Virtual Didactic Series will feature high yield weekly topics every Wednesday from July 5 - September 20, 2023.  Each session will feature interactive and case-based content with "take-home" clinical pearls of wisdom.  Participants will engage with course Faculty and each other live on Swapcard. If you can't attend live, you will be able to access the content on-demand at your convenience. Also included is an exclusive and dynamic Intern Academy virtual community to post discussions, answer questions, share resources, and engage with colleagues!

 The program has the following goals to meet the needs of early career urology residents:

  • Provide a standardized and foundational course for early career residents to introduce them to urology.
  • Provide a course that complements the efforts of individual residency programs.
  • Deliver a uniform curriculum to ensure baseline proficiency to improve patient safety.
  • Provide an opportunity for early career residents to begin networking with peers.

Note: For Programs unable to send their Residents to the 2023 Hands-on Skills Training, if you purchase the Virtual Didactic Series Only your residents will get first priority registration for the 2024 Hands-on Skills Training next June 2024!
