Leading Edge Urology: 47th Duke Urologic Assembly and Duke Urologic Cancer Symposium

March 5, 2015 to March 8, 2015

With over eight decades of experience in caring for patients with urologic diseases, Duke’s Division of Urologic Surgery has established itself as a world leader in urologic care, research, and education. The Duke Urologic Assembly began in the 1970’s and was held annually at Pinehurst; we are excited to return to our roots at Pinehurst for the first time in decades.   LEADING EDGE UROLOGY: 47th Annual Duke Urologic Assembly will evaluate the most recent advances in the diagnostic evaluations, therapeutic options, management of complications, and technologies that provide leading edge care to patients. Participants will be engaged through moderated discussions and interactive lectures on the latest evidence-based approaches to managing a wide range of urologic conditions across the spectrum of life. 

In partnership with our colleagues in the Duke Cancer Institute we will designate Thursday of the DUA for the DUKE UROLOGIC CANCER SYMPOSIUM; a full day CME event featuring lectures by Duke and guest Medical Oncologists, Radiation Oncologists, and Urologists speaking on the latest diagnostic, medical, and surgical aspects of urologic cancer management.
