New Orleans not only is the birthplace of jazz music in the United States, but also is home to the 117th AUA Annual Meeting, to be held May 13–16, 2022 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center. After 2 years of virtual meetings, we are looking forward to being back together in person as a global urology community.

The AUA Annual Meeting is the largest gathering of urologists in the world, and it is where you will find unparalleled access to groundbreaking research, new guidelines and the latest advances in urological clinical care. While we hope you will join us in person, the AUA will offer virtual and hybrid options for the annual meeting.

AUA’s Annual Meeting, as well as other year-round educational offerings, provides the highest standards for urological education. The AUA programs offer something for everyone, including residents, researchers, medical students and others. There are also educational offerings tailored for advanced practice providers and practice managers, like the Practice Management Program.

The AUA2022 program will include favorite sessions, such as “When Disaster Strikes: Preventing and Managing Nightmares in Urology,” “Semi-Live Surgeries and Surgical Techniques,” “Second Opinion Cases” and more. As in previous years, soon to be released AUA clinical guidelines will be presented, and new for 2022 is “How I Do It: Common Urologic Procedures.”

Information about the newest advances in clinical care as well as new surgical techniques, innovations, discoveries and technologies is all a part of the AUA’s Annual Meeting. With all the AUA has to offer, it is no wonder attendees unanimously state the knowledge they receive at the meeting positively impacts their practices.

While in New Orleans, please enjoy the city’s invigorating spirit, walk through the French Quarter and learn more about the city’s rich history. There are plenty of sights to see and more than 1,400 great restaurants. For more information and to register, visit
