The AUA and the Urology Care Foundation recognize the need to provide physician-scientists with the training, tools, and resources to succeed as independent researchers in urology. Protected time to conduct research is one of the most important needs, which is typically difficult to establish when balancing with a urology practice. To encourage physician-scientists who have shown significant promise by successfully competing for career development awards from federal and other funding sources, and promote their pursuit of additional education and training in urologic research, the Urology Care Foundation developed the Rising Stars in Urology Research Award program. It provides supplemental salary support to recipients to ensure that their protected time for research remains stable and that their salary compensation is more competitive with their non-research urology faculty peers.
The application deadline for the 2015 Rising Stars in Urology Research Award Program has passed. Please check back in the summer of 2016 for details about next year's competition.
