AUA Fundamentals in Urology – American Urological Association

June 11, 2016 - June 14, 2016


The Fundamentals in Urology course is designed to apply basic science knowledge and principles in the development of treatment algorithms. This 4-day course will provide attendees with valuable skills in developing a rational methodological approach to the application of knowledge which will contribute to positive outcomes for patients. Participants will discover the importance of the study of basic sciences and how it transfers into the lifelong learning process and medical practice. This course is designed to ensure a fundamental knowledge of the “why” behind a broad expanse of general urologic conditions. An in-depth understanding of the core science behind the treatments will allow for better counseling and education of patients by all clinical urologic practitioners.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Identify specific applications of basic science knowledge and principles in development of treatment methods
  • Develop a scientific and methodological approach to the application of knowledge gained at the conference that is consistent with AUA guidelines and best practices
  • Compare newly published findings and their impact on medical practice and patient care
  • Transfer continuing study of basic sciences into lifelong learning process and medical practice
  • Articulate the rationale for their treatment approach concisely to the patient and modify the treatment plan as circumstances change

This course is designed for urology residents and allied health professionals. Emphasis is on basic sciences and the clinical applicability to urology.

There are also two optional courses – Pathology & Urodynamics, starting on June 10.

Learning Objectives

After attending this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe the common tumors and their top differential diagnoses in a given genitourinary organ and clinicopathological setting
  • Identify the key pathological features, molecular alterations and behavior of common tumor entities
  • Interpret the latest classification schemes, contemporary grading practices and commonly used ancillary techniques in pathologic diagnosis
  • Determine the essential elements in the pathology reporting of genitourinary tumors and discuss their clinical relevance

Learning Objectives

After attending this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Describe hydrodynamic principles essential to urodynamic testing and interpretation
  • Discuss elements of a urodynamic evaluation including uroflowmetry, filling cystometrogram, abdominal and detrusor leak point pressures, sphincter electromyogram, voiding pressure (pressure-flow) study and urethral pressure study
  • Differentiate techniques and diagnostic information obtained on single channel urodynamic testing, multichannel urodynamics, and video urodynamics
  • Apply knowledge of hydrodynamics and urodynamic techniques to the interpretation of urodynamic result
