After a two-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic, residents and young urologists can finally enjoy this year’s edition of YUORDay, which is a staple in the programme of the Annual EAU Congress dedicated to aspiring and promising urologists.

Battle for the championship
One of the many highlights of YUORDay22 will be the EAU Guidelines Cup, a riveting competition that rose to popularity back in 2018 and puts a spotlight on who knows the EAU Guidelines the best. The top three participants, Dr. Anastasios Tsalavoutas (GR), Mr. Wojciech Malewski (PL), and Dr. Jose Antonio Lopez Plaza (ES) will show off their skills and battle it out on stage for the chance to be named champion at this year’s live EAU Guidelines Cup finale.
Aside from the prestige, awards, and bragging rights, the contenders of the EAU Guidelines Cup are entitled to three coveted prizes.
The champion of the EAU Guidelines Cup will receive an Apple Watch, courtesy of the ESRU and the YUO.
The prize for second place is the four-volume set of Campbell-Walsh Urology (12th edition). This series features new chapters, hot topics, and vital updates with online access to 175 video clips.
The third-prize winner of the EAU Guidelines Cup will have the privilege to choose from a selection of comprehensive masterclasses organised by the European School of Urology (ESU).
The audience can anonymously compete via voting pads as well. The audience member with the highest score will receive admission to an ESU masterclass of his/her choice.
