2019 Annual Health Policy Essay Competition

The New England Section, with support from the AUA, will fund the trip of four residents, fellows and/or young urologists (urologists 10 years or less out of residency; 13 years or less out of fellowship continuous after residency graduation) in 2019 to attend the 2019 AUA Advocacy Summit in Washington, DC, as it recognizes that engagement of young urologists in urologic advocacy is important to the specialty. To apply for this funded trip, please complete the information below and submit along with your essay by January 1, 2019.

Your essay should be a maximum of 750 words and address one of the following topics:

  1. Please define a significant problem facing urology residents, fellows, and/or young urologists and possible solutions.
  2. Urology is a relatively small subspecialty. What should urology do over the next five years to retain or expand its influence in organized medicine?
  3. How should urologists continue to improve patient quality of care? Please define a specific quality of care issue and propose a solution?
Winning essays should be submitted to Urology Practice for publication consideration. Note that any essays submitted to the journal will need to be submitted in the format followed by Urology Practice, including article length and appropriate citation of references, and winners of the Section Essay Competition should disclose this information accordingly.

All fields are required.
