Fellows' Day

Join fellows and faculty from the AUGS community for a half-day program geared toward fellows’ interests. There will be a panel discussion focused on how to find a job after fellowship, including experts from an academic model, HMO model, private practice model, and urology practice model, as well as an expert in contract negotiations.  

The program will also include a Stump the Professor session and a breakout session for abstract presentations, where fellows can practice presenting their research projects to a small group of peers. 

All fellows are encouraged to participate in this session. You will also have the opportunity to participate in one of five roundtable topics lead by various experts in our field. Lastly, you will have the opportunity to meet AUGS President, Halina Zyczynski, who will discuss opportunities for fellows to get more involved in AUGS.

We look forward to having you join us for this informative and interactive program. Residents are also welcomed to attend Fellows’ Day
