AUA and European Association of Urology (EAU) Academic Exchange Program

In 1993, the AUA and the EAU began an award program designed to provide young urology faculty with an international perspective on urologic medicine. The program not only allows the sharing of knowledge and experience but is designed to foster a closer alliance between the AUA and EAU, and assists in identifying future leaders within both organizations. During the odd numbered years, European urologists visit centers in North America, and in even numbered years, North American urologists travel to European host sites. Travel schedules allow sufficient time for a comprehensive overview of clinical facilities and sufficient leisure time for sightseeing.

We will be accepting applications in 2019 for the 2020 program.
