Surgical Skills Conference

Our surgical skills conference is a supplement to your hands-on surgical training.

It’s important that you continually strive toward optimal technical and non‐technical skills for genitourinary surgery. That’s why we’ve incorporated our surgical skills conference into our curriculum.

These meetings enable you to learn about surgical skills outside of the operating room. Through didactic lectures, discussions and presentations, we’ll augment your knowledge of surgical skills and procedures at this conference.

Each month, our urology faculty members will present on a different topic. 

Examples of potential areas of coverage are:

  • ileal conduit procedures and Indiana pouch
  • interstim and percutaneous tibial nerve stimulation
  • partial nephrectomy
  • robotic radical prostatectomy
  • ureteroscopy
  • urodynamics interpretation

Further, our surgical skills conferences can help you better understand the principles, methodology, indications and hazards of many procedures.

You’ll be required to attend all meetings of our surgical skills conferences. 

While we do not expect you to present, we will require you to be an active learner and serve as a role model for medical students attending the surgical skills conference.
