Fellowship Showcase

Join us for AUGS 2023 Virtual Fellowship Showcase. This social media event, taking place November 13-17th, 2023, will make it easy to showcase your fellowship program to Urogynecology Fellowship applicants. This unique event was created to help fellowship programs connect with residents and to help residents learn about programs through a standardized platform.

Why should you participate in the Virtual Fellowship Showcase?

  • You control the message and standardize the information applicants receive regarding your program
  • You reach a large, targeted audience in a cost-effective way
  • Social media provides an equal-opportunity platform, regardless of your marketing budget
