Young Urologists Committee

Seth A. Cohen, MD


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, Advanced Practice Provider Committee, American College of Surgeons (ACS), American Medical Association Young Physicians Section and AUA Leadership Program.
