AUA/Sociedade Brasileira de Urologia (SBU) Academic Exchange Program

The AUA/SBU Academic Exchange Program allows young academic urologists to benefit from the sharing of knowledge and experiences with colleagues in Brazil. Medical advances are often the result of fruitful collaboration, and this fellowship is designed to facilitate such opportunities. The program not only allows the sharing of knowledge and experiences, but is designed to foster a closer alliance between the AUA and SBU, and assists in identifying future leaders within both organizations.

This reciprocal program designed for two urologists includes a 2-4 week educational experience at an academic center(s) in Brazil, and attendance at an SBU urology meeting. During the exchange, participants observe urologic surgeries/procedures, attend clinics, present lectures and take part in staff activities. The exchanges are “observation only” – participants do not perform hands-on surgery.

Apply today for the AUA/SBU Academic Exchange program. The application deadline is April 1, 2015.

Program Schedule

Scholars will spend 2-4 weeks visiting Brazilian institution(s) and will attend the biennial meeting of the Sociedade Brasileira de Urologia in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, October 30 – November 4, 2015.
