3rd Annual Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Urologic Oncology Conference

Aurora, CO US
June 7, 2024 to June 8, 2024

The Pediatric, Adolescent and Young Adult Urologic Oncology Conference is an opportunity for urology physicians and fellows to expand their understanding and education in the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of this specialized area. Pediatric urologic oncology has traditionally been considered a minute aspect of routine pediatric oncology, however, recent reviews of pediatric urology practice demonstrates the proportion dedicated to oncology is more widespread than provided in traditional education in fellowship training. 

Over the course of this two day conference, learners will better understand and assess the management of oncology issues in pediatric urology practice, evaluate standards of care for children, adolescents and young adults with urologic malignancy, and improve comprehension of current surgical guideline competence with a focused review of current National Comprehensive Cancer Network, American Urological Association and Children’s Oncology Group guidelines.

Registration Fees: 

  • Fellows Live or Virtual Attendance: FREE
  • Non-Fellow Healthcare Provider Live Attendance: $250
  • Non-Fellow Healthcare Provider Virtual Attendance: $150


For the comfort and convenience of out-of-town learners, we have a limited number of rooms reserved at the Hyatt Regency Aurora-Denver. Hotel accommodations for two nights are complimentary for urology fellows and offered at a discounted rate for physicians -- please select your preference when registering for this event.
