Needs & Objectives

Wisconsin Urological Society
2020 Annual Meeting

April 17 - 19, 2020
The Abbey Resort
Fontana, WI

Educational Needs

Urologists require continuing educational enrichment to keep abreast of the developments in the field. Urology is rapidly changing and new surgical technologies, medications, chemotherapy and surgical techniques have a great impact on patient care as well as health care economics. Urologists must assimilate this knowledge and make medical decisions for the best of their patients. This dissemination of this knowledge is or can be facilitated by academic centers to community urologists. Specifically, urologists must be aware of complex issues in voiding dysfunction, pediatric urology, issues related to urologic oncology (Penile carcinoma, urethral stricture disease, bladder cancer, prostate cancer and kidney cancer), reconstructive urology, infertility, robotic surgery and stone disease.
