Between current faculty, residents and alumni, UroGators were well represented including the current SESAUA President Scott Sellinger. The scientific content, as usual, was timely and cutting edge. The opportunities for fellowship and networking were ample as well and included a banquet at the Florida Aquarium on Saturday. UF resident Jennifer Kuo placed 3rd among all Florida program residents in the Milton Copeland Pyelogram Hour. The resident contests including the Victor Politano Debates are always entertaining, sharp and witty and reflect the hard work of the residents. Our state society annual meeting is consistently a favorite of the residents and members. At the end of the meeting, Rafael Carrion handed the gavel to Kevin Lee. Rafael ran an excellent meeting and gave a moving tribute to his father Hernan, a former FUS President as well. Next year’s meeting will be at the Hyatt Regency Grand Cypress in Orlando, with two of our faculty, Drs. Paul Crispen and Larry Yeung, serving as the scientific co-chairs.

The UroGators and UF Department of Urology now prepare for the 60th anniversary of residency training celebration on October 5th and 6th in Gainesville. The events include the David M. Drylie Visiting Professorship lecture by Steven Nakada and the LSU vs Florida tailgate and football game on Saturday. Another proud moment for the men and women of UF that call themselves UroGators.
