Dubai, August 24, 2013
The first annual AUA Middle East Urology Summit will be held in Dubai from September 5 to 6 in partnership with the American Urological Association (AUA), Pan Arab Continence Society (PACS) and the support of the Cleveland Clinic.
Designed for practicing urologists, urologists-in-training and allied health professionals who are involved with urology, the Middle East Urology Summit has assembled a list of distinguished local and international faculty, many of whom are involved in cutting edge research in their fields.
This summit will feature an intensive scientific programme packed with highlights of the latest advances and treatment in urology as presented at the AUA's 2013 Annual Meeting in San Diego.
The latest knowledge and technical know-how in a large number of topics including prostate and renal cancers, management of localized small renal masses, transplantation, reconstructive urology, and infertility/erectile dysfunction.
Highlight of the AUA 2013 summit would include hands-on workshops in urodynamics, laparoscopy, 'live animal' and male continence surgery will also be available.
Dr Gopal H Badlani, secretary of the AUA, said: “It is my belief that the first annual AUA Middle East Summit done in combination with the local experts will fulfil a void in training and educational need of the region. It will foster the interchange of urological skills, expertise and knowledge which is critical to the continued success in improving patient care.
“AUA understands the challenges faced by the global urologic community and is pleased to participate in this inaugural program in the Middle East.”
