Scheduled to be held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 7th-10th August 2019, at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre, the UAA Congress 2019 is a much-anticipated event and one of the largest urology gatherings in Asia.
First organised 29 years ago, it is now an annual event (since 2015), and it has grown tremendously over the years in terms of scientific programme diversity, delegate numbers and methods of presentation. The event has traditionally included the conference proper, the Urology Residence Course and the symposium for nurses in Urology. However, it now includes “live” surgeries, Masterclasses and an Exhibition.
The Congress provides ample opportunities for networking, poster sessions and an interesting visit to view the booths on display at the concurrent adjacent Exhibition area.
The typical delegate profile consists primarily of Urologists as well as other specialists including other members of the medical fraternity such as Nurses and Residents. It is also attended by Researchers, Academics and representatives from industry-related businesses.
UAA Congress 2019 will be held at the award-winning world-class venue of Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre.
Unifying Asia Thru Urology
The dictum “Unity is Strength” holds true in 2019’s theme for the UAA Congress. Asian Urologists, through sharing and discussion of their knowledge, skills, and experiences can be conduits of positive change – especially relevant in today’s economic and political clime. The 21st Century, with its novel challenges and fast-evolving technology is also an age of collaboration – a time when people of different skills and mindsets can work together to accomplish more than they can, on their own. This calls for urologists from throughout the Asia region to collaborate and synergize in sharing know-how, to meet the desired outcomes.
Strength comes from unity, and the solidarity and cooperation of a united Urology in Asia will empower it with a vast potential to take on a leadership role in the advance of Urology globally.
