Resident Resources

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 info@augs.org
