A Message from Sammy E. Elsamra, MD, FACS
Chair, AUA Young Urologists Committee

Welcome to the AUA's Young Urologists page. On behalf of the AUA Young Urologists Committee, I invite you to explore the many resources and engagement opportunities the Committee offers. I am honored to serve as Chair of this Committee.

As part of the AUA Section Secretaries/Membership Council, the Young Urologists Committee represents the voice of early-career urologist members of the AUA. A "young" urologist is defined as a urologist (who has completed training) who has been in practice for ten years or less.

The membership of the Young Urologists Committee includes the Chair, Chair-Elect, Immediate Past Chair, representatives from each of the eight AUA sections as well as one Doctor of Osteopathy representative and one active duty military representative. In addition, the Committee also includes liaisons from the Residents and Fellows Committee, Advance Practice Provider Membership Committee, American College of Surgeons (ACS) and the American Medical Association Young Physicians Section.

Activities and initiatives of the Committee include:
