AUA 2019

The University of California Irvine’s Department of Urology has been a consistent presenter at the American Urologic Association annual meeting for over 20 years. Annually, the American Urological Association’s national meeting is the testing grounds for new ideas and unique research of both a basic and clinical nature. This is the major meeting of the year for Urology and attracts over 15,000 urologists from the U.S.A. and around the world.

Not surprisingly, the American Urologic Association annual meeting is a highly competitive meeting in which only 25% of submitted abstracts are accepted for presentation. Due to the generosity of our supporting community and the hard work of our investigators, 2018-2019 has been a banner year for research within the department. Accordingly, it is with much excitement that our department had an amazing 63% rate of abstract acceptance and will present over 25 abstracts at this year’s meeting. Without you, this would never have been possible!

12 abstracts; 1 podium presentation in prostate oncology/men’s health
10 abstracts in endourology/stone disease
3 abstracts in reconstruction
1 podium presentation in urologic oncology
