The European Society of Residents in Urology (ESRU) was founded in 1991 as the body representing the trainees in urological surgery within the European Union and its associated countries. From the start in 1991 until the beginning of 1996 the name of the organization was European Board of Urologists in Training (EBUT).
The ESRU is part of the Young Urologistis Office, together with the Young Academic Urologists and the young non-academic urologists. The ESRU works in close cooperation
The objectives of the ESRU foundation are:
- to support training in urology in Europe
- to closely collaborate with the EBU, the EAU and other recognised organisations
- to organize congresses and workshops for urologists in training
- to maintain a representation in the EBU and in organisations involved in urological training in Europe
- to support the creation of national associations for urologists in training in Europe.
The ESRU initiates several projects that encourage future and young specialists in urology to acquire new perspectives by exchanging knowledge, experience and becoming familiar with various urology departments across Europe.
