ESOU online

In collaboration with the European School of Urology, the EAU Section of Oncological Urology and EAU’s journal EU Oncology, the EAU is introducing a new online educational programme, called ESOU Online. This blended learning activity combines different learning techniques with the aim to transfer knowledge within the field of uro-oncology at a broader scale.

By reusing the scientific content of the ESOU21 meeting in an online educational environment, we are able to enhance the reach to HCPs across Europe and beyond. Faculty of the ESOU21 meeting will be invited to contribute to the educational programme by participating in various formats of video interviews. These educational videos will be published in the educational segment of the UROONCO platform and also on uroweb.org/education.
