One of the spring programs at the American Urological Association’s (AUA) Annual Meeting is the National Urology Resident Preceptorship Program. The overall long-term goal of this meeting is to increase the number of funded investigators, as well as increase both the quantity and the quality of funded grants. A proposed agenda for the 2014 program includes two sessions: one for career choices in urology and the other highlighting the surgeon-scientist career choice. The overall focus is recruiting talented investigators into urology research departments, and to assist in preparing them for forging a strong career path as a surgeon-scientist. The program is designed for department chairs, program directors, residents and young investigators.
