Duke Urology Visiting Professor Lectureships

"The presence of Visiting Professors permits point-counterpoint discussions beyond the standard provided by our current faculty thereby facilitating growth and knowledge for both our present faculty and residents."   

In support of improving patient care, Duke’s Division of Urology offers opportunities for education and professional development to the entire health care team through a variety of conferences and symposiums at Duke and the southeast.  Visiting Professorships offer to Duke Faculty, Fellows, Residents, and staff opportunities to address current therapies, treatments, and technologies in the subspecialties of urology and urologic oncology.  Intended to stimulate scientific discussions across a variety of basic science and clinical disciplines and to enhance trainee education, past meetings have attracted over 100 faculty, trainees, and staff from Duke.
