The American Urological Association is now accepting teaching video abstracts for inclusion in the Urology Core Curriculum. Teaching video abstracts should provide step-by-step instructions for performing common surgical procedures. Each video submission will be reviewed by the Urologic Video Education Committee and the best videos in each category will be submitted to the Core Curriculum Committee for final selections. Authors of accepted videos will be notified by December 31, 2018. The accepted videos will be played in a continuous feed at the 2019 AUA Annual Meeting in Chicago and will be published in the AUA Core Curriculum.
