A year in the making, and in just a few weeks the world’s premier urological meeting will be in full swing.
This year we are offering 80 Instructional Courses, of which 22 are new, as well as seven Hands-on Courses. We also will continue our tradition of providing new guidelines-based courses. This year AUA will be introducing new guidelines on LUTS associated with BPH, testosterone replacement and erectile dysfunction. Our Hands-on Courses will provide attendees the experience of performing ultrasound, MR/US fusion prostate biopsy, PCNL, urodynamics and prostate MRI.
Each year we review our Annual Meeting educational opportunities to ensure that we provide our attendees the best value. In 2018 there are three ways to access the AUA Instructional Courses. The Live Course Pass is our traditional option. For a second year, we are also offering the Course Pass Bundle, which gives you access to all 80 live courses and all 80 online webcasts. And new this year, we are offering a single-course ticket. We often hear how our attendees want to go to just one course to learn something specific or support a colleague or resident, and so now is your chance. Access to the Instructional Courses can be purchased with your registration, through the mobile app or at the AUA Store upon your arrival in San Francisco.
The AUA team will be on site in San Francisco to provide any assistance necessary. We look forward to seeing you in San Francisco in May.
