NYU Urology Post Graduate Course

in NYU Langone Medical Center
550 First Avenue
Alumni Hall, Farkas Auditorium
New York, NY 10016

The diagnosis and management of many urologic diseases have been greatly influenced by recent pharmacological, surgical and technological advances. One of the greatest challenges of the practicing urologist is to stay abreast with the many dynamic changes in this field. An internationally acclaimed faculty has been assembled to provide this update, with presentations on topics such as prostate cancer, benign prostatic hyperplasia, female sexual dysfunction, infertility, urethral stricture disease, and kidney stones. During the plenary sessions, the registrants will have the opportunity to participate in question and answer sessions. In addition, an emphasis on case presentations with faculty participation will enhance the practical value of the course.
