From the newest updates in urology and core theoretical knowledge to best practices, the ESU course programme encompasses over 50 top-quality, clinically-oriented courses.

The ESU not only offers the insights of experienced mentors and faculty, but also ensures participants will get the best practices that are vital in offering optimal care to patients first-hand. The faculty delivering the courses are assessed for their teaching skills and the course content they deliver. ESU courses are taught throughout the entire year: at national meetings, section meetings, and the Annual EAU Congress.
