Join the MA-AUA
The benefits of membership in the Mid-Atlantic Section are quite extensive. Here are just a few:
The Mid-Atlantic Section provides their membership with a great Annual Meeting each fall. Consider the quality of the academic institutions within the Section! The programming is useful to anyone in current practice, interesting to those no longer practicing, and educational for all. Each Annual Meeting is accredited, providing you with CME credits.
Highlights of the Annual Meeting are the Point-Counterpoint debates, State-of-the-Art lectures and the optional Ultrasound course offered each year which provides skills verification certification to participants who pass.
Unlike the national AUA Meeting, we hold our sessions in one location and keep afternoons free for leisure time. On the social side, the Mid-Atlantic Section offers a Theme Reception and the Presidentís Reception and Banquet each year for those who wish to attend.
Most meetings are held within our Sectional boundaries so that Section members have the opportunity to attend, considering schedule and budget constraints. Occasionally, we do venture to new and exciting destinations outside of the Sectionís boundaries.
Itís fun to see familiar faces when you attend a Mid-Atlantic Section meeting. Friendships made and maintained can last a career. In addition, networking with other urologists within the region provides an avenue for case discussion and referral, and contacts you make with exhibitors can prove extremely valuable.
Mid-Atlantic Section members also have the ability to search for regional urologists on the MAAUA website. This is just another way to create a valuable network and maintain communication with the Mid-Atlantic urology community.
As a Mid-Atlantic Section member, you will have the opportunity to participate on the various Committees of the Section. Some members also choose to serve as Section representatives to National Committees of the AUA. Participation on all levels builds leadership skills and members are encouraged to be involved. Please note: The Executive Committee of the Section provides direct input on the selection of members to AUA Committees, including its Officers.
Research and Clinical Scholarships
The Section provides awards for the annual Resident Research Prize presentations in basic and clinical science.
