The Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Urology holds regular interactive, online video lectures with the goal of providing new information and training for practicing urologists, residents, fellows, medical students and more. The lectures are held live online once a week and continuing medical education (CME) credits are available when participating live. They are presented in an interactive way, allowing for discussion and questions. Recorded videos are also available to watch after the lecture is over. These programs center around three major categories: virtual operating room—surgical techniques, case-based management and general urology presentations.
Virtual operating room sessions focus on teaching surgical techniques for different urological operations. Surgical steps as well as advice on troubleshooting and tips to manage anatomical variations and prevent and manage complications are discussed.
General urology presentations provide training on a variety of urologic conditions. Sessions on personal and professional development will include topics like ethics, career planning and professionalism.
