EAU-AUA Exchange Programme

Organised by the European Association of Urology (EAU) and the American Urological Association (AUA), this programme provides the opportunity for onco-urologists at an early stage in their career to take part in the two-week scholarship at various institutions in the United States and attend the AUA’s annual congress.

The following year, an American onco-urologist takes part in the scholarship at reputable institutions in Europe.

About the programme

The EAU-AUA International Exchange Programme will send American faculty to Europe and European faculty to the United States. The programme aims to promote international exchange of urological medical skills, expertise and knowledge.

The upcoming 2023 American Tour will provide grants to enable two EAU members to travel to and attend the AUA congress in Chicago, IL from 28 April to 1 May. Afterwards, the fellows will participate in an extended ten day travel programme to visit several urology centres in the United States.
