Recertification (MOC) Review Course Webcast: Core Urology (2017): Complications of Urologic Surgery

The purpose of the AUA Recertification (MOC) Review Course is to prepare attendees for the ABU Recertification Examination. This course will be practice focused and will offer practical and clinically-specific updates. It will highlight the AUA guidelines and address general urology practice issues that can be expected on the Recertification Exam. The course will model the changes to the Recertification Exam by covering core/general urology on the first day followed by a pre-selected breakout in one of four areas on the second day. Breakout sessions include oncology/urinary diversion; calculi, obstruction, endourology and laparoscopy; andrology, impotenence, infertility and infection; and female urology, incontinence, voiding dysfunction and reconstruction. Sample multiple choice practice questions as well as case based discussions and debates will be utilized to prepare attendees for the upcoming Recertification Examination. For more information on the changes to the Recertification Exam, please visit www.abu.org/recertification.
