WCE Endourology Fellowships
The World Congress of Endourology (WCE), held in London in 2015, was supported by BAUS and its members. As a result of the financial surplus from this meeting, BAUS has agreed to make funds available for Fellowships to allow the exchange of endourology skills and knowledge worldwide, both by UK trainees learning in overseas centres, and by overseas colleagues observing practice and studying in the UK.
We are, therefore, pleased to invite you to submit an application for an award of up to £8000, in order to facilitate a visit to a unit of your choice that would aid your clinical practice. This will be a competitive award judged by the Section of Endourology Executive Committee.

The deadline for submissions is Friday 19 October 2018. It is anticipated that candidates will be notified whether they have been successful by the beginning of November.

The Malcolm Coptcoat Lecture
The Section Executive invites a guest lecturer to deliver the prestigous Malcolm Coptcoat Lecture at the Section's annual meeting.
Malcolm (pictured), a pioneer in the field of endoscopic renal surgery, sadly died suddenly in 1999. The Section of Endourology introduced this named lecture in memory of Malcolm in 2001.
Following service in the medical branch of the RAF, Malcolm Coptcoat joined the Institute of Urology, in 1984, to achieve his desire to return to civilian practice as a urological surgeon. With John Wickham as his mentor, Malcolm made a considerable contribution to the world of urology in a very short space of time.
His work on the development of endoscopic renal surgery was internationally-recognised and Malcolm became one of the most proficient surgeons in Europe in this field.
Malcolm went on to build up a strong department of urology at King’s College Hospital, London, lectured around the world and became a respected teacher and leader in the field of laparoscopic surgery.
He chaired the WHO guideline group on laparoscopy. In 1990, the first laparoscopic nephrectomy in the UK was undertaken by Malcolm Coptcoat, Adrian Joyce (Leeds) and John Wickham (London) at King's College Hospital. In the same year, Malcolm assisted Jens Rassweiler from Mannheim in undertaking the first such procedure in Germany. Malcolm led by example and caused a sea change in our thinking about traditional open surgery. It is in recognition of such efforts that the Section created the Malcolm Coptcoat lecture at the Annual Section Meeting.
