The Future Directions in Urology Symposium (FDUS) is an annual urology think tank a non-CME educational summit that brings together industry and experts to discuss the current state of genitourinary care and define future directions in treatment. Attendees from industry include marketing, sales, medical affairs, MSLs, researchers, and senior management.
There are no exhibits at the FDUS conference, as all meeting time is dedicated to interactive presentations, meet-the-expert opportunities, and group discussions on topics such as general urology (OAB, BPH, stone disease, hypogonadism), genitourinary cancers (prostate cancer, renal cancer, bladder cancer, etc.), men’s and women’s urologic health, ongoing clinical trials, FDA Committee reviews, and reimbursement issues, and more. In addition to topical lectures by leading urology experts, sponsoring companies are allowed and encouraged to provide optional individual 10-minute on-podium lecture slots in each content session. These lecture slots allow industry to present data and discuss their future research plans.
