Fellowship

Learn from renowned experts by applying for one of the fellowships offered by the EUSP and the EAU Section Office. Improve your skills in a leading hospital and within a specialty of your choice during a three to six-month fellowship abroad.

European Robotic Curriculum

The EAU Robotics in Urology Section (ERUS) has developed a structured and validated modular training programme aimed at improving surgical skills for robot-assisted radical prostatectomy (RARP). The programme instructs and enables surgeons to perform a robot-assisted prostatectomy, independently and effectively. The fellowship includes theoretical sessions, skills training (dry and wet laboratories), real-case observation in a training centre, bedside assistance, and mentored training at the console. Participants at the certified host centres go through the comprehensive curriculum in stages (modular training) with dedicated guidance by a local mentor.

ESTU Fellowship on Kidney Transplant

In collaboration with the EAU Section for Transplantation (ESTU), the EUSP offers a Fellowship on Renal Transplant. During a period of 18 months you will learn all the ins and outs of urological-nephrological management both surgically and medically. During the first six months you will participate in all training levels at a certified European centre in Renal Transplant. Participants will then spend the remaining 12 months and complete the fellowship at the Miami Transplant Institute – Jackson Memorial Hospital.

ReproUnion: Fellowship in Andrology

The EUSP, the EAU Section of Andrological Urology (ESAU) and ReproUnion have linked up to offer fellowships to four post-doc/PhD researchers for them to join one of several proposed research projects on fertility. ReproUnion is a network of 13 clinical and research units in Denmark and Sweden, and an international, frontline organisation which aims to examine fertility issues and meet future demands in managing and preventing infertility.

Participants will have access to outstanding expertise and research tools available to ReproUnion, such as registries, large patient cohorts and biobanks in the Nordic countries. Applicants must be a member of the EAU, not a resident in Denmark or Sweden, and must be a (co-)author to a PubMed-listed publication in the field of urology or andrology. The focus for the fellowship should be on research; training in specific techniques should be limited.

EULIS Fellowship in Endourology

This scholarship programme aims to encourage and support young urologists to improve their skills and boost their experience in endourological urinary stone management procedures, namely: Percutaneous nephrolithotomy (PNL) and ureteroscopic management of urinary tract stones (URS). The visiting young endourologist will join all clinical rounds, all scheduled scientific meetings, and case discussion sessions held in the department. Fellows are also required to participate in relevant stone-related procedures (such as ureteroscopic and percutaneous stone removal) performed in the department with other team members. The participant will join the team as an observer to learn the various procedures but will not directly operate.
