This course is designed for urology residents and allied health professionals. Emphasis is on basic sciences and the clinical applicability to urology.
The Fundamentals in Urology course is designed to apply basic science knowledge and principles in development of treatment algorithms. NEW this year, the course has been redesigned to 3 days to allow for less time out of the office and in a convenient location for traveling out of state! This course will provide attendees with valuable skills in developing a rational methodological approach to application of knowledge which will contribute to positive outcomes for patients. New topics for this year include Reflux, Obstruction, and Undescended Testes- Causes and Clinical Implications and Medical and Surgical Management of ED. Attendees will discover the importance of the study of basic sciences and how it transfers into the lifelong learning process and medical practice. This course is designed to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the "why" behind a broad expanse of general urologic conditions. A thorough knowledge of the basic science behind the treatments will allow for better counseling and education of patients by all clinical urologic practitioners.
NEW this year- all registration options include online educational modules. This course features enhanced programming that allows registrants to access additional online learning resources and modules at the convenience of their home for less time away from the office!
