About this course

Skip About this course

Urology is the clinical science of diseases within the genitourinary system of males and females. Anatomically it includes diseases in the upper urinary tract like the kidneys and ureters, the lower urinary tract like the urinary bladder and urethra, and the male inner and outer genitals like the prostate, testicles and the epididymis.

Many of the symptoms from these organs belong to the top 100 most common symptoms for which patients seek help. This course will set you on a path to a basic understanding of the most common symptoms from the genitourinary system.

You might think that urology merely is a surgical specialty but that opinion couldn’t be more wrong. Today urology is a speciality including numerous new and common non-surgical and pharmacotherapeutic alternatives. Our goal for participants taking this course is to gain knowledge and instill confidence in basic clinical reasoning within the urological field.

The course will include clinically relevant cases.
