Life Long Learning and the ABU


I am sending to you a recent summary prepared by the American Board of Urology about its “Town Hall” meetings, held during the 2017 and 2018 AUA meetings.  I was privileged to be asked to participate in these meetings to hear the concerns of urologists about the Maintenance of Certification (MOC) process.

As detailed in the summary, the ABU has made several changes to its processes for Diplomates.  In short, the MOC process has been reformatted and is now called Life Long Learning.  More detailed information about the program can be found on the ABU website at

LUGPA continues to monitor these ABU developments, as important elements in the independent urologists’ professional life, and will continue to report to our members on future ABU activities that affect their practices.
