From the most controversial and urgent issues in urology to the newest treatment strategies and best clinical practices, experts provide their views and insights in panel debates, case presentations and state-of-the-art lectures and updates.

Thematic Sessions

The core issues and challenges in urology are grouped in various thematic sessions to examine and highlight research updates, the experience of expert centres and the pressing questions that confront urologists in their daily practice.

Abstract Sessions

Insights are shared and the interactive discussions are aimed to deepen urological knowledge in these sessions that present the newest research studies from European and overseas institutions.

Section Meetings

The EAU’s Section Office presents specialised topics for discussion and the simultaneous section meetings offer in-depth knowledge from a broad range of urological specialties such as oncology, reconstruction urology, paediatrics, female urology to neuro-urology, among many others.

Live Surgery Sessions

Well-attended not only by urologists but also by medical professionals working in related fields, the live surgery sessions deliver best practices by some of the world’s uro-surgical experts and also tackle the challenges and practical issues faced by surgeons in actual practice.

ESU Courses and Hands-on Training Courses

From core and basic specialties in urology to more advanced masterclass courses, the European School of Urology (ESU) annually presents a credited curriculum of CME and Hands-on Training (HOT) courses that aim to deepen the skills of young and mid-career urologists.
