One of the main features of Grand Rounds in Urology™(GRU) programming is interactive engagement among medical professionals and industry. Through virtual online on-demand education programs and live CME conferences we strive to bring together a community of urology and oncology professionals to exchange knowledge and discuss best practices for the future directions in urology. Our program designs include brief lectures, case presentations, panel discussions, point-counterpoint debates, and audience response technology. Through this professional discourse, GRU aims to improve physician professional development and, ultimately, patient outcomes.
Perspectives in Urology: Point Counterpoint (PCP) is a CME-accredited conference that focuses on a broad range of urology topics and brings together expert faculty to offer updates, interactive discussions, panel discussions, debates, and case reports. PCP is designed for urologists, urologic oncologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and management of urologic diseases.
The International Bladder Cancer Update (IBCU) is a CME-accredited conference designed to discuss the diagnosis and treatment of bladder cancer. IBCU offers medical professionals an opportunity to interact with expert, international faculty to improve knowledge, receive the latest updated clinical trial information, and determine best treatment practices to improve patient outcomes.
Designed by both urologists and radiation oncologists, the Southwest Prostate Cancer Symposium (SPCS) is a multi-day, CME-accredited conference intended for urologists, radiation oncologists, medical oncologists, physicists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the treatment of prostate cancer. It will educate the attendees about advances in the management of localized and advanced prostate cancer, with a focus on imaging, technology, and training in the related devices and techniques.
The International Prostate Cancer Update (IPCU), founded in 1991, is a multi-day, CME-accredited conference focused on prostate cancer treatment updates with international faculty providing attendees a variety of viewpoints and how-to instruction. IPCU will offer interactive participation through lectures, panel discussions, debates, clinical trial updates, and case reports. This conference is led by expert physicians and is designed for urologists, medical oncologists, radiation oncologists, and other healthcare professionals involved in the diagnosis and treatment of prostate cancer.
Advances in Men’s Health (AMH) is a CME-accredited conference that will provide relevant education to both primary care and urology providers, featuring speakers who are both leaders in their field and skilled teachers. It is hoped that a dialogue will ensue between PCPs and urology specialists that will enhance the quality of everyone’s men’s health care delivery.
The 11th Urology Today conference is a CME-accredited program held in conjunction with Wake Forest Baptist Health that will keep urologists, urologic oncologists, and other healthcare providers educated on the most pertinent issues in urology practices. Areas of focus include urologic oncology, men’s health and reconstruction, female urology, pediatric urology, kidney stones and conditions, and methods of providing the best care while also handling the required logistics of the business side of medicine.
The Future Directions in Urology Symposium (FDUS) is an annual urology think tank. It is a non-CME educational summit that brings together industry figures and medical experts to discuss the current state of genitourinary care and define future directions in treatment. Industry attendees include representatives from marketing, sales, medical affairs, research, and senior management, as well as medical science liaisons (MSLs).
The 25th Annual Innovations in Urologic Practice conference will provide a detailed review and commentary on multiple genitourinary and urologic diseases. Among the featured oncological topics are a description of bladder cancer and immunotherapies, as well as upper tract cancer management, prostate cancer, including state-of-the-art imaging, focal therapy, and MRI. Experts will also discuss new tools and techniques for nephrectomy and treating advanced renal cell carcinoma. In terms of general urological approaches, conference sessions will educate attendees on pelvic reconstruction and trauma, men’s health topics like male infertility and sexual dysfunction, and ways to diagnose and treat infections in the urology patient.
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.
