Connect with the FPMRS Community
AUGS Connect, the online members-only community is a central resource for members to connect with peers in the field of female pelvic medicine and reconstructive surgery. Features of this community include a personal profile, and access to announcements, discussion forums, and the AUGS Membership Directory.
To help women seeking a urogynecologist, nurse, nurse practitioner or physical therapy provider, AUGS maintains the Find a Provider Directory, a central database where members can list their practice information, website, training information and areas of practice. The provider directory is located on the AUGS patient website, www.voicesforpfd.org.
