The BAUS Programme Committee met earlier this year to review the 2016 Annual Meeting and to begin planning for 2017. As I am sure you are aware, the EAU is holding its conference in London in March 2017. Therefore, our Education Committee was mindful of the need to ensure the programme for BAUS next year would complement that of the EAU (and not duplicate it), and to encourage as many UK-based urologists as possible to attend BAUS by offering a distinctly different focus – not least given the limited study leave now available for meetings.
As a result, a number of major changes have been made for 2017, these include:
- reducing the length of the meeting to three days (Mon 26 – Wed 28 June)
- reducing the number of teaching courses
- reviewing the skills courses and
- reducing the number of guest lectures while still ensuring, and enhancing, the academic and scientific rigour of the conference.
The BAUS Programme Committee will review the situation after BAUS 2017 to evaluate these changes.
