Urology is a rapidly evolving and innovative surgical specialty. As a result, it can be difficult to keep abreast of all the changes in diagnostics, pharmacotherapy and surgical techniques that are taking place. The sections below are designed to keep your urological knowledge up-to-date.
Urologyresource.com is a stand-alone website, created and managed by Mr Hari Ratan, Consultant Urological Surgeon in Nottingham, to provide free, high-quality, educational material to medical students that allows you to keep abreast of urological innovation.
Some of the published resources are also suitable for core surgical trainees studying for the MRCS exam, as well as for higher surgical trainees in urology preparing for the FRCS Urol exam.
You can download any of the individual resources, and distribute them freely on social media; you are also encouraged to contribute your own material to the website.
