East Midlands Urological Society

The East Midlands Urological Society (EMUS) was established to promote the best urological care for our patients in the East Midlands and to encourage both clinical and basic scienctific research.

EMUS aims to promote the sub-specialisation of urology by actively engaging in regional sub-specialist MDTs.

Furthermore, the Society interacts with BAUS in a dynamic way, sharing audits through the BAUS Audit and Data Project and providing BAUS with the views of the regional membership with regard to postgraduate training and clinical practice.

All EMUS meetings are now held at The Kilworth House Hotel, Lutterworth Road, North Kilworth, Leicestershire, LE17 6JE.

The History of EMUS

EMUS (East Midlands Urological Society) came into being on 17 March 2010 at Kilworth House, Leicestershire. 

Previously, urology in the Trent Region was represented by the Trent Urology Group (TUG). The change from TUG to EMUS reflects the regional representation of BAUS according to SHA/Deaneries, rather than by the old Health Authority Areas. Sheffield was originally a member of TUG but is now with Yorks & Humber and we have incorporated Northampton into East Midlands from the old Oxford Deanery.

Historically, TUG worked in an autocratic manner with a Chairman appointed by the regional urologists for a 5-year term. The responsibilities of the post amounted to organising regional meetings at various base hospitals every 6 months and acting as Secretary to the regional urology training programme 6-monthly for the RITA / ARCP assessments. 

As attendance at 6-monthly meetings became more difficult due to time pressures, it was decided to have one AGM centrally. Now, a whole day is set aside for presentations from both Consultants and trainees. Indeed, the trainee session is assigned its own timing and the best paper is awarded a prize (formerly the Gordon Bryden Prize, now the EMUS Trainee Medal, pictured right).
