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 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.
The IBCU 2023 Expert Forum is a closed-format, invitation only event that will bring together a multi-disciplinary group of academic and community bladder cancer experts to discuss and debate the most challenging questions in all areas of bladder cancer.
