There are numerous resources available regarding the diagnosis and management of pelvic floor disorders. AUGS has created a curated list of resources for residents.
Some of the content is available for members-only, but many memberships are free to residents.
We welcome suggestions for additional resources for residents to utilize! Suggestions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Resident Scholars Award Program is for third-year Ob/Gyn residents and fourth-year urology residents who have an interest in female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Each scholar will receive complimentary registration and a $1,000 award to cover travel and hotel accommodations.
