The AUA Leadership Program identifies urologists who have demonstrated effective leadership skills within organized medicine or the community. Since 2004, the AUA and its Sections have sought applicants who are driven to tackle future roles of responsibility within the AUA. This is a call for younger AUA members to polish their leadership skills, take advantage of networking opportunities and become better acquainted with AUA programs and services.
To date, 127 AUA members have participated in one of seven different Leadership Program classes.

The candidate must have an interest in developing these skills to serve their Sections and the AUA as future volunteer leaders.
