Duke Urologic Assembly

In Response to COVID-19

Officials at Duke, along with health officials worldwide, are actively monitoring the local and global health status of the novel coronavirus that causes the COVID-19 disease:

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. 

In support of this effort to mitigate the spread of the coronavirus and in consideration for the well-being of our external faculty, Duke is postponing, cancelling or virtualizing any Duke-sponsored in-person event taking place on-campus or off-campus until further notice. 

This includes recruitment events, tours, student programs, reunions, performances, conferences and social events.  For more information on Duke's response, please see
