The European Society of Residents in Urology

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

with the European Board of Urology (EBU) and the European Association of Urology (EAU) in matters concerning the training and education of residents in urology.

Our Mission

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.

What we do

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.

Find out more about medical practices of other institutions, to broaden your horizon and all in all to become a better doctor and scientist.
