Urology Centers of Alabama hosted their annual CME conference in March at the Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook. This year's focus was "Urology Fundamentals: There's more to Urology than just Catheters!"
Topics included a Patient's Journey through the UCA comprehensive prostate cancer center, urological issues facing women, cutting edge minimally invasive therapies, male infertility, and other male sexual health issues. Taylor Bragg, MD, Brian Christine, MD, Jason Biddy and Marcie Prescott served as the conference planning committee. The event was attended by over 115 physicians, mid-level providers and nurses and was kicked off with a reception for physicians, attendees, and exhibitors on the Friday evening prior to the conference.
"This conference was a great opportunity for us to educate PCP's regarding a broad range of topics affecting patients," Taylor Bragg, MD said. "We strive for collaboration between UCA and the PCP's and this is an excellent opportunity for us to discuss the most up to date Urologic treatments. We are already planning the agenda for next year's conference."
"We enjoy hosting this conference as it allows the UCA team to provide information of value to the PC physicians in diagnosing and treating common urologic problems," Brian Christine, MD said. "We wanted to help Primary Care practitioners understand when to refer and to enlighten our audience as to current trends in Urology, and how we are leading the way."
