AUA/Japanese Urological Association (JUA) Academic Exchange Program

The AUA/JUA Academic Exchange Program allows young academic urologists to benefit from the sharing of knowledge and experiences with colleagues in Japan. 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 experience, but is designed to foster a closer alliance between the AUA and JUA, 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 Japan and attendance at the JUA Annual 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.

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2015 AUA/JUA Academic Exchange program.

Program Schedule

Scholars will spend 2-4 weeks visiting Japanese institution(s) and will attend the annual meeting of the Japanese Urological Association in April 18 – 21, 2015 in Kanazawa, Japan.
