The mission of the NCS Young Urologists Committee is to address issues specific to young urologists and provide them with the resources they need to make a successful transition from residency to practice. A "young urologist" is defined as one who is no more than ten (10) years out of residency.
An additional three years is permitted (up to 13 years) to allow for fellowships that are continuous after residency graduation. In addition, we seek to increase camaraderie and facilitate collegial relationships and collaboration across state lines and practice types amongst young urologists.
