The application period for the 2018-2019 Leadership Program is now closed. The 2020-2021 application period will open in summer of 2019.
WHO: American Board of Urology (ABU) (or equivalent) certified urologists, 15 years or less out of training, and have demonstrated leadership skills and an interest in developing these skills to serve their Sections and the AUA as future volunteer leaders. They must also be Active members of the AUA and the AUA Section where they live and practice.
Three individuals from each of the following AUA Sections are chosen to participate in the program: Western, North Central, South Central and Southeastern; and two individuals from each of the following AUA Sections will be chosen to participate in the program: New York, New England, Northeastern and Mid-Atlantic.
WHAT: AUA receives the applications, which are sent to the applicant's Section for review and selection. The program provides the opportunity for younger members to polish their leadership skills, take advantage of networking opportunities and get better acquainted with all the AUA has to offer. The program requires a commitment of in-person meetings, as well as participation in conference calls with mentors. The program's kickoff weekend at AUA Headquarters during the summer of 2018 will be packed with excellent speakers; networking opportunities with peers, mentors and other VIPs; and time for the class to get to know one another. All expenses will be paid by the AUA and the Sections. The graduation ceremony will be held at the 2019 AUA Annual Meeting.
