Conferences

Final Week to Register! Online Registration will close on Thursday, August 24th at 5pm Pacific Time.

With the aging of the American population and increases in access to affordable health care, primary care providers are increasingly caring for urologic disease.  Men are disproportionately afflicted by urologic disease, and “Men’s Health” is a growing medical arena where specialized knowledge is required.  The diagnosis and management of many urologic diseases have been greatly influenced by recent pharmacological, surgical and technological advances.  One of the greatest challenges care providers face is staying abreast with the many dynamic changes in this field.  An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as Prostate, Bladder, and Testicular Cancer, Hypogonadism and Testosterone Replacement, Sexual Dysfunction, Voiding Dysfunction, Kidney Stones and Genital Pain Syndromes. During the plenary sessions, the registrants will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions.  In addition, an emphasis on case presentations with faculty participation will enhance the practical value of the course.
