Urological conditions comprise a significant fraction of general pediatric practice, but many clinicians received little formal training in the management of these diverse disease processes. This course serves as an intensive review and update for pediatricians, family physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, and other clinicians who treat children with urological conditions, including urologists seeking to refresh their pediatric knowledge and practice.
This year the course directors and presenters will provide various case study examples to engage conversation and Q&A relevant to various topics.
- Upon completing this course, participants will be able to:
- Develop new strategies to manage a wide range of urological conditions in children
- Evaluate the current literature and evidence base for pediatric urologic conditions.
- Apply current techniques for surgical management of congenital and acquired urological conditions
- Determine when a patient can be safely managed in the general pediatric clinic, and when subspecialty referral is appropriate.
