AUA/Indian American Urological Association (IAUA) Chakrobortty Fellowship Program In Partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center
The AUA/IAUA Chakrobortty Fellowship Program in partnership with Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center is designed to further promote the interchange of urological skills, expertise and knowledge, and provide outstanding and promising junior faculty members in India with an opportunity to interact with colleagues in North America. Medical advances are often the result of fruitful collaboration, and this fellowship is designed to facilitate such opportunities. The program can directly impact the educational opportunities for young urologists while improving the delivery of quality care to patients in India. Such collaboration will also enhance the knowledge and global perspectives of AUA and IAUA members in North America.
The program is designed for two Indian urologists to visit a North American host institution(s) for up to a 6 week period, and spend an additional week at the AUA Annual Meeting. During these visits, the scholars will have the unique opportunity to observe urologic operations and procedures, and attend clinics and staff activities. One scholar should be a Pediatric urologist or have a strong interest in Pediatric urology, and will visit Cincinnati Children's. The other selected scholar may be in any urology sub-specialty area and their host institution(s) will be determined at a later date.
Scholars will spend up to 6 weeks visiting North American institution(s) and will attend the AUA Annual Meeting in Spring 2016.
