Workshops Organized by EULIS

Dear colleagues,

Dear sisters and brothers in stone,

EAU section of Urolithiasis (EULIS) aims to promote all developments in the medical and surgical management of urinary stones. With the participation of its well-known and experienced members, our section is organizing “educational post-graduate workshops” to give basic principles of “medical” and “minimal invasive surgical management “of the stones and focus on the latest technological developments in this field of urology. Participants can get the chance of following of new contemporary treatment modalities of urinary calculi during key note lectures, live-surgery presentations and practice in hand-on training sessions. These workshops are being held in a “standardized manner” and as demonstrated in the program as well as application form any center aiming to organize these workshops is cordially invited. It will be a great pleasure for highly experienced EULIS members in different working groups to organize a successful, interactive and contributive educational event with a close collaboration with hosting team.
