Scientific Summits meeting
12 & 13 October 2018

Location: “Auberge du Pêcheur” in St-Martens-Latem

We are very pleased to announce that we will organize the next Uro Scientific Summits event on Friday 12 & Saturday 13 October 2018 in the charming place of Sint-Martens-Latem in the congress center of Auberge du Pêcheur

Again, we are looking forward working in direct partnership with the BVU (Belgische Vereniging voor Urologie) and under patronage of BRAVO (Belgian Radiotherapy Awareness & Visibility Organization) and ESRU (European Society of Residents in Urology).

Like every year, we will apply again for Mdeon approval. New this time is that we also started the procedure that assesses the conformity of the Scientific Summits event with the MedTech Europe Code of Business Practice.

Our multidisciplinary symposium will emphasize even more on interactivity with video-based learning sessions and case discussions, allowing participants to experience ground-breaking techniques and treatments and learn directly from national and international key opinion leaders.

Scientific Summits once again welcomes the best experts in their particular domain.

We look forward to welcoming you all in Sint-Martens-Latem!
