Event Overview
Welcome message:

The Fundamentals in Urology course is designed to apply basic science knowledge and principles in development of treatment algorithms. NEW this year, the course has been redesigned to 3 days to allow for less time out of the office and in a convenient location for traveling out of state!  This course will provide attendees with valuable skills in developing a rational methodological approach to application of knowledge which will contribute to positive outcomes for patients. New topics for this year include Reflux, Obstruction, and Undescended Testes- Causes and Clinical Implications and Medical and Surgical Management of ED. Attendees will discover the importance of the study of basic sciences and how it transfers into the lifelong learning process and medical practice. This course is designed to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the "why" behind a broad expanse of general urologic conditions. A thorough knowledge of the basic science behind the treatments will allow for better counseling and education of patients by all clinical urologic practitioners.

Online Educational Modules Description

This year's course features enhanced programming that allows registrants to access additional online learning resources and modules at the convenience of their home for less time away from the office! The online educational modules include webcasts of content that was removed from the live program. The online educational modules for 2018 will include the following content:




Obstructive Uropathy

Applications Outcome

Renal Physiology

Online Pathology and Urodynamics Modules Description

This year's course features enhanced programming that allows registrants to access additional online learning resources and modules at the convenience of their home for less time away from the office! The Online Pathology and Urodynamics Modules will include the following content:


This course provides urologists and allied health professionals an overview of the main pathological characteristics and biology of common neoplasms of the kidney, urinary tract, prostate and testis.

Learning Objectives:

Describe the common tumors and their top differential diagnoses in a given GU organ and clinic pathological setting.

Identify the important pathological features, molecular alterations and behavior of common GU tumor entities.

Interpret the latest classification schemes, contemporary grading practices and commonly used ancillary techniques in pathologic diagnosis.

Determine the essential elements in the pathology reporting of common GU tumors and discuss their clinical relevance.       


This course provides a detailed overview of urodynamic testing techniques and pitfalls including hydrodynamic principles. Emphasis is placed on the interpretation of urodynamics, including recognizing abdominal and detrusor physiologic events, urethral resistance during bladder filling and micturition, urinary incontinence, and recognition of physiologic and technical artifacts.

Learning Objectives:

Apply knowledge of lower urinary tract function and electronic measurement of pressure, flow and electromyography to performance of a multichannel urodynamic test including prestudy uroflowmetry, filling cystometrogram and voiding pressure flow study.
