GRU Presents the 42nd Annual Ralph E. Hopkins Urology Seminar

Changes occur in medicine and urology on an almost daily basis, so it is imperative that the practicing urologist remains on the cutting edge. Urologists need to keep current on assessing, diagnosing, and treating urologic conditions in the clinical setting. This meeting will provide an update on urologic cancers, stone disease, urologic reconstruction, female urology, infertility, emerging surgical techniques, and general urology.
