Continuing Medical Education

The department hosts two activities annually which give medical professionals the opportunity to further their knowledge in the field of urology. Both activities award American Medical Association Physician Recognition Award (PRA) Category 1 credits through the UI Carver College of Medicine. The Flocks Visiting Professorship is held each spring.  A distinguished urologist presents several lectures focusing on a specialty area of urology. Urology residents are also selected to present their current research studies. The Department also hosts the Iowa Urological Society conference each fall in Iowa City. Distinguished lecturers, faculty and residents present various topics of interest to urologists and allied health care professionals. 

Mark your calendars and plan to join us for our 2017 CME conferences! Details will be available in the coming months. Questions? Contact Ava Rutter: ava-rutter@uiowa.edu or phone 319-467-5074. We look forward to seeing you!
