Duke Urologic Assembly

2021 LEADING EDGE UROLOGY: Duke Urologic Assembly and Urologic Cancer Symposium (VIRTUAL)   April 8 - April 10, 2021

Duke University Medical Center

 

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!
