The Future Directions in Urology Symposium (FDUS) is an annual urology think tank and non-CME educational summit that brings together industry figures and experts to discuss the current state of genitourinary care and define future directions in treatment. For the first time, this meeting will be virtual due to the COVID-19 pandemic in 2020.
Industry attendees include representatives from marketing, sales, medical affairs, research, and senior management, as well as medical science liaisons (MSLs). There are no exhibits at the FDUS conference, as all meeting time is dedicated to interactive presentations, meet-the-expert opportunities, and group discussions on topics such as general urology (e.g., OAB, BPH, stone disease, hypogonadism), genitourinary cancers (e.g., prostate cancer, renal cancer, bladder cancer, etc.), men’s and women’s urologic health, ongoing clinical trials, FDA committee reviews, reimbursement issues, and more. In addition to topical lectures by leading urology experts, sponsoring companies are allowed and encouraged to fill optional individual 10-minute virtual lecture slots in each content session. These lecture slots allow industry to present data and discuss their future research plans. The virtual meeting will also include virtual networking to replicate the feel of the live meeting.
