The course will model the changes to the ABU exam by covering Core/General Urology on the first day followed by Neurogenic Bladder, Voiding Dysfunction, Female Urology, BPH & Urethral Stricture on the second day.

Sample multiple choice practice questions as well as case-based discussions and debates will be utilized to prepare attendees for the upcoming knowledge assessment. For more information on the changes to the exam, please visit
