from the organising chair
On behalf of the organizing committee, welcome to Urofair 2020. Our theme is "Advancing Urological Care into the Next Decade". It will be held from 23-25 April 2020. The venue will be at Grand Copthorne Waterfront. In the first Urofair of the new decade, we look forward to showcasing new treatment and emerging technology which will improve the care of patients as we enter the new decade.
On the first-day we are having the ever popular semi-live surgical video sessions. We aim to pack in as many as 20 faculty during the semi-live surgery session. Succinct sessions allow faculty to highlight tips and tricks of surgery, maximizing the learning opportunities for the audience. This is a great opportunity for industry partners to showcase their technology in edited video sessions presented by world experts.
The next 2 days will feature thematic plenary sessions and state-of-art lectures covering a broad range of urological topics such as oncology, minimally invasive and robotic surgery, endourology, functional & reconstructive urology, andrology and new surgical technology.
The plenary sessions will run concurrent with topical masterclasses and workshops which are supported by relevant industry partners. The masterclasses are usually well-attended by urology trainees and young urologists looking to learn from the experts in their fields.
There will also be a concurrent Nursing symposium which attracts a large attendance every year, bringing urology nurses from Singapore and the region together to exchange ideas and share knowledge.
We also hold a GP symposium every year which attracts close to 100 GPs. We present a broad variety of urological updates to empower GPs to update their skills yearly.
Urofair is the marquee conference in the Singapore urology calendar routinely attended by more than 400 local and regional participants.
We look forward to welcoming you to Urofair 2020!
