Meeting of the Young Academic Urologists (YAU)

The Young Academic Urologists (YAU) is a group of talented and already renowned European young urologists. We aim to promote high-quality studies in order to provide strong evidence for the best urological practice. In this session both scientific and educational context will be discussed among the members of YAU and the leaders of European Urology.

YAU Awards: Best Paper published in 2022 for Orsi fellow Dr. Federico Piramide!

YUORDay23 - Part I: EAU Young Urologists Office (YUO) & European Society of Residents in Urology (ESRU)

Introduction of the European Society of Residents in Urology (ESRU) and the Young Urology Office (YUO). The aim of this session is to offer talks tailored to residents' and young urologists' educational needs. ESRU & YUO present the traditional surgical tips and tricks and research and academic topics. A brand-new session called nightmare cases will take place, in which residents and young urologists will participate alongside with experts in the discussion of complicated case management. The other two sessions called 'urology for dummies' and 'challenging the guidelines' will summarize key current topics. Finishing with the great finale of the EAU Guidelines Cup, a competition between the three finalists of the Cup and the audience.
