The Rising Stars in Urology Research Award program provides up to five years of supplemental salary support to urologists who have successfully competed for career development awards from NIH or other major funding organizations. The award provided by the AUA and Urology Care Foundation ensures that the salary compensation for those committed to careers in urologic research remain competitive with that of their clinical urology peers. The program encourages recipients to contribute to urology as both surgical specialists and scientists investigating causes, prevention, treatment and cures that will improve patients’ lives.
