From the newest updates in urology, core theoretical knowledge to best practices, the ESU course programme encompasses over 50 courses.


The courses deliver top-quality, clinically-oriented information for immediate use in your practice, and the faculty delivering the courses are assessed for their teaching skills and the course content they deliver. The ESU aims to not only offer the insights of experienced mentors and faculty but also ensures participants will get, first-hand, the best practices that are vital in offering optimal care to patients. During the Annual EAU Congress you can follow most of the courses mentioned below for Continuing Medical Education (CME).

Together with national societies, the ESU conducts post-graduate accredited courses to share urological science and experience in those countries with limited educational resources.
