The Planning Committee, led by Andrew J. Armstrong, MD, Michael N. Ferrandino, MD, Glenn M. Preminger, MD, in collaboration with the Duke Office of Continuing Medical Education has made the difficult, but necessary decision to cancel the 2020 DUA to support efforts to contain and mitigate against threats posed by the coronavirus outbreak. We wish to sincerely thank you for your patience and understanding as we evaluated postponement and cancellation options. In response to these unprecedented circumstances, our leadership is adjusting the cancellation policy for this event. Please also allow us time to process full registration fee refunds for the registrants. Information for exhibitors and sponsors will be forthcoming.
UPDATE March 16, 2020 3:00 PM EST
Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities.
Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
UPDATE March 11, 2020 5:30 PM EST
Under the guidance of Duke University and Duke Health, the Planning Committee has made the difficult, but necessary decision to postpone the 2020 Leading Edge Urology Symposium to support efforts to contain and mitigate against threats posed by the coronavirus outbreak. We are currently investigating options to hold the meeting later this fall at the same venue. Postponing the symposium is aimed at removing any additional risk posed to clinicians who would be needed to manage patients should the situation with coronavirus become more serious. The health, safety, and well-being of our attendees, staff, exhibitors, and faculty is of paramount importance. We will announce the dates and location of the rescheduled 2020 Leading Edge Urology Symposium as soon as they are confirmed. All currently registered attendees, exhibitors, and faculty will receive more information via e-mail in the coming days.

Join an outstanding roster of national urologists, oncologists, and radiologists participating in a comprehensive scientific program that encompasses leading edge updates on the most effective and efficient diagnoses and treatments in the sub-specialties of urology.
The rapid evolution of knowledge coupled with an unprecedented release of practice changing clinical trials require an ongoing review to ensure accurate diagnosis and disease management options by all levels of the urologic community.
Healthcare professionals attending this symposium will be engaged through interactive talks, supplemented with video surgical presentations, interactive case presentations, and panel discussions on the latest evidence-based clinical approaches to managing a wide range of urologic conditions.
After attending this program, participants should be able to:
•Apply effective and efficient diagnosis and treatments in the sub-specialties of urology and urologic oncology
•Analyze new technologies and therapies to provide the utmost, least invasive care to patients
•Evaluate and outline management options for the various urologic conditions
•Choose appropriate patients for minimally invasive surgical approaches
•Distinguish various surgical approaches and compare their effectiveness and safety profiles
•Develop collaboration between urologists, genitourinary oncologists, and radiation oncologists for patient care from diagnosis to management
In support of improving patient care, the Duke University Health System Department of Clinical Education and Professional Development is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the health care team.
