ESU Courses

From the newest updates in urology, practical insights, core theoretical knowledge to best practices, the course programme of the European School of Urology (ESU) at the 37th Annual EAU Congress in Amsterdam will this year encompass the full breadth of urology, providing expert knowledge and in-depth views on major topics and procedures.

The ESU aims to not only offer the insights of experienced mentors and faculty, but also ensure participants will get, first-hand, the best practices that are vital in offering optimal care to patients. Below you will find 55 courses in 17 areas ranging from Female Urology, Infections, Stones, Trauma, and Male LUTS to onco-urology to paediatric urology.
