The 2016 Annual meeting of the Taiwan Urological Association (TUA) will be held in Veteran General Hospital, Taipei, Taiwan from August 20 to 21.
The organizing committee sincerely welcomes you to join this important educational and scientific annual meeting.
In the 2015 annual meeting, a series of stimulating educational programs and more than 200 presenting abstracts highly increased the academic level of TUA annual meeting.
From the feedback of TUA members, these well-organized educational programs enable them to learn urological medical progress in many aspects. In this year, the organizing committee will continue to provide you the state-of-the-art lectures in plenary session, meet the experts, structured workshops, educational courses, and TUA symposia.
We also organize a Pan-Pacific Continence Society/ TUA joint symposium, Asian Urology Forum, TUA forum of Botox treatment on lower urinary tract dysfunction, TUA forum of prostate cancer, and chief resident debates. Many well-known worldwide experts from USA, Europe, Japan, Korea, China, and ASEAN will attend and present in this meeting.
Through interaction with these experts, young urologists can learn update knowledge and have fruitful discussion with them. In addition, we have prepared a pre-congress simulative surgery course for young urologists to learn pelvic floor dissection and surgeries for stress urinary incontinence and pelvic floor prolapse. The simulative surgery course will be held in Buddhist Tzu Chi University, Hualien, Taiwan. Foreign attendants are also welcome to participate this very stimulating course.
On behalf of the TUA, I would like to invite you to submit open papers and posters to be presented as part of the scientific program. Your contribution will surely increase the scientific level of this annual meeting.
