AUA Summit - Speakers



AUA2021 is Fully Virtual!

There is no higher priority for the AUA than supporting our members and the medical community during challenging times. Based on the decisions being made by institutions that effect the ability of our speakers, moderators and presenters to attend the Annual Meeting in person, and in recognition of concerns about safety, the AUA Board of Directors has decided to make the 2021 AUA Annual Meeting a fully online, virtual experience to take place September 10-13, 2021.

 As we move our Annual Meeting to a fully virtual format, we look forward to offering you the same vibrant programming you have come to expect from the AUA and opportunities to reflect and connect over the emerging and leading topics within our specialty. The virtual meeting will include a robust offering of learning and engagement, including educational programming, abstracts, keynotes, surgical videos and space to connect with sponsors, exhibitors, and educators from across the globe. In addition to participating in the live event, all attendees will have access to on-demand recordings through the end of the year.

We recognize the AUA Annual Meeting is a major global event for the urology community and preparing for a meeting of this magnitude involves the time and talent of a great many of our physician volunteers and speakers. We are incredibly grateful for their time and deeply disappointed not to be able to hold the in-person portion of our meeting as planned.
