Surgical Education

The ESU constantly seeks new approaches to enhancing learning of the surgical skills that are crucial to clinical practice.

We have developed innovate and effective Hands-on-Training (HOT) programmes, in partnership with the EAU Sections, which offer practice and development of individual skills. Beyond that are the emerging Structured Training Programmes, for which the Robotic Urology Fellowship has now completed its pilot. The first European skills examination in laparoscopy (E-BLUS) has matured into a credible marker of expertise,

and the ESU aspires to make this exam widely available to urologists (-in-training) throughout Europe. To find what HOT sessions and E-BLUS examinations are coming up, check the ESU Calendar; they are generally organised at the EAU Annual Congress, and in conjunction with ESU events. Online we offer several options to prepare yourself for the E-BLUS and E-BRUS examinations.
