Fundamentals in Urology Bundle (2017)

June 17, 2017 to June 20, 2017

The Fundamentals in Urology course is designed to apply basic science knowledge and principles in development of treatment algorithms. This 4-day course will provide attendees with valuable skills in developing a rational methodological approach to application of knowledge which will contribute to positive outcomes for patients. Attendees will discover the importance of the study of basic sciences and how it transfers into the lifelong learning process and medical practice. This course is designed to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the "why" behind a broad expanse of general urologic conditions. A thorough knowledge of the basic science behind the treatments will allow for better counseling and education of patients by all clinical urologic practitioners.

Target Audience

  • Urology residents

  • Recognize how an MRI of the prostate and urethra can be useful and the key features of prostate tumor on MRI.

Adrenal and Renal Physiology, Bowel Diversions, and Bladder Cancer

  • Describe how fundamentals of adrenal anatomy and physiology integrate into the care of the urologic patient.
  • Discuss renal physiology for the urologist, especially for the following pathologic states: TUR syndrome, upper urinary tract obstruction, post-obstructive diuresis, pregnancy, renovascular hypertension, and juxtaglomerular tumor.
  • Review the major genetic alterations that are present in bladder cancers.
  • Define “intrinsic subtypes”.
  • Discuss their implications for disease heterogeneity and precision medicine
  • Review current understanding of immunotherapy for treatment of bladder cancer.

PSA and the Prostate, Neurogenic Bladder, and Reproductive Biology

  • Review the current data on the controversies, clinical trials and laboratory testing for prostate cancer screening in asymptomatic men.
  • Explain lower urinate tract neurobiology and how disease processes, such as neurologic disease; result in predictable lower urinary tract dysfunction.
  • Describe penile anatomy and the physiology of erection.
  • Describe the major causes of erectile dysfunction.
