International Congress on the History of Urology

The EAU History Office is organising the 6th International Congress on the History of Urology, which will be held in conjunction with the 31st Annual EAU Congress in Munich, Germany in the spring of 2016.

On March 11th 2016, the first day of the Annual EAU Congress, the History Office will be organising a full-day programme which highlights urology on all six inhabited continents. The full-day programme highlights the history of urology on all six inhabited continents, organised around four distinct topics:

  • Worldwide roots– international contributions to early urology
  • Politics– the establishment of societies, standards and regulation
  • Pioneers– the personalities and stories behind innovators of the field
  • Sex around the world– attitudes and practices across the globe

We are currently looking for speakers from around the world to contribute to one of the four topics. If you are interested in giving a presentation, please send us an e-mail!

The programme will feature a wide range of subject matter that should be of interest for any urologist who is planning to attend EAU16. It is also possible to attend the International Congress on the History of Urology separately.

We look forward to welcoming you to Munich!
