We have a system that differentiates between member & non-member registrations for webinars in all but the fourth heading below - there is no charge for BAUS members, but non-members will be asked for payment. All "Innovations in Urology" webinars are free to BAUS members and non-members alike

1. Controversies in Urology (Educational lead: Sunjay Jain)

Introduction by Sunjay Jain, Consultant Urological Surgeon, St James's University Hospital, Leeds

Busy clinicians need access to the latest information to help with best management of their patients, but they often don't have much time to keep up-to-date. The controversies series aims to update topical subjects in an engaging way. A variety of formats will be used, including expert viewpoints, debates and case discussions. The priorities in planning this series have always been to cover areas that will appeal to all urologists, whatever setting they work in, and to ensure high-quality by inviting recognised leaders, both British and international, in their field."

We have come to the end of the latest series of "Controversies" webinars. Webinar recordings from 2020 onwards can be accessed from the e-learning archive page by clicking here


2. Specialist Trainees (Educational lead: Hari Ratan)

Introduction by Hari Ratan, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Nottingham University Hospital:  

There has been a seismic shift in the delivery of national & regional training this year, and BAUS has led the way in developing on-line teaching for urology trainees. We are delighted to continue to offer high-quality, interactive webinars for all BAUS members. These webinars will seek to cover a broad spectrum of the urology specialist training curriculum, and will feature experts in urology from around the UK. There will be a variety of formats, including case-based discussions, debates & evidence reviews. The teaching will be geared to those preparing the the FRCS Urol exam, but will be of value to trainees of any level."

3. Innovations in Urology (Educational lead: Oliver Wiseman) 

Introduction by Oliver Wiseman, Consultant Urological Surgeon, Addenbrooke's Hospital, Cambridge:

We are delighted to announce the re-launch of our BAUS, industry-sponsored, webinar series. The series aims to give companies a channel through which they can showcase their latest technology, techniques and products (or evidence related to them) directly with our members, especially where face to face education and congresses have been severely restricted. This, in turn, will allow our members to stay at the forefront of developments within our rapidly-changing speciality.

"There are numerous launches of new technologies that companies will be excited to share, together with new evidence relating to existing treatments.

"We will be running one webinar each month. They will be supported by an individual company, and will likely be related to a particular technology, therapy area or patient pathway.  We hope that BAUS members will see this as an exciting opportunity to stay up-to-date with advances in
