Needs Assessment 

The Virtual Urology Learning Program 2020 presented by PRUA is one of the very limited opportunities for urologists in practice within Puerto Rico to get CME urology credits during this pandemic, for this reason, there is a clear need for a well-balanced, unbiased, educational program that will bring our local urologists up-to-date on the diagnosis and management of common urologic problems as well as the prevention and management of complications that could arise in the diagnosis and management of genito-urinary malignancies, voiding dysfunction, sexual dysfunction and stone disease. The Virtual Urology Learning Program will address these needs.
