The Rising Stars in Urology Research Award program provides up to five years of supplemental salary support to urologists who have successfully competed for career development awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or other major funding organizations. These awards ensure that the salary compensation for those committed to careers in urologic research remain competitive with that of their clinical urology peers. The program encourages recipients to contribute to urology as both surgical specialists and scientists investigating causes, prevention, treatment and cures that will improve patients' lives.
The 2018 Urology Care Foundation Rising Stars in Urology Research Award competition is now closed. Please check back in the spring of 2019 for next year's competition.
