Duke Urologic Assembly
During these unprecedented times, out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of our attendees, faculty, vendors and staff, the Planning Committee has made the necessary decision to pivot the 53rd Annual Duke Urologic Assembly and Urologic Cancer Symposium to a virtual CME experience on Thursday, April 8 – Saturday, April 10, 2021. We are in the process of planning and designing the program to fit this new format in a way that is accessible, engaging, and still offers the premium learning experience you'd expect from Duke Urology. We will update this page with more information in the coming days.
We hope you'll join us virtually in April!
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 requires 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.
