Thank you to all who attended and participated in the 2014 Kimbrough Meeting in San Diego!
The 2014 Kimbrough Seminar was a huge success!

Vice Adm. Michael J. McCabe, became Commander, 3rd Fleet in May 28, 2003 in an informal change of command ceremony held aboard USS Coronado (AGF 11).

McCabe is the son of a World War II and Korean War naval aviator who was killed on active duty. Michael McCabe was born in San Diego and raised in the San Francisco Bay area. He is a graduate of the University of Portland, received his commission through Aviation Officer Candidate School and was designated a naval flight officer in 1971. We welcome Vice Admiral Michael McCabe to the 61st Annual Kimbrough Meeting!

We are excited to host the 61st annual James C. Kimbrough Urological Seminar at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina on Harbor Island
January 15-19, 2014.
We are in the process of organizing an exciting and robust academic program to continue the unrivaled excellence of our conference, as exemplified by the outstanding 2013 meeting arranged by Dr. Joe Sterbis and Tripler Army Medical Center.
The usual timeline has been slightly condensed for this year’s meeting. The President’s welcoming reception will be on Wednesday, January 15 followed by three full meeting days and a half-day on Sunday, January 19. Monday, January 20 is a holiday so we invite you to stay an extra day to enjoy America’s Finest City.
In addition to a fantastic group rate of $139 (updated to reflect current federal per diem rate), the hotel provides a complimentary shuttle to and from the airport which is just minutes away. The location, program and value could not be better.
This 5-day course, with a distinguished group of visiting faculty, will focus on state of the art discussions of best practices and controversies in urology so that we remain current on the most cutting-edge strategies available to improve patient outcomes. As usual, we will include ample time for audience questions and will include discussions of challenging clinical scenarios in each category of the course. Novel research presented in podium and poster sessions, resident lectures, and industry programs will round out our meeting.
The accommodations for the meeting will be at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel Bay Tower, conveniently located right on San Diego Bay and across the street from the airport. In addition to engaging academics, we are planning a number of exciting social activities to make this a great meeting.
San Diego’s famed Little Italy, Seaport Village, and Gas Lamp district are just a short ride away and are home to a number of award-winning restaurants, shops, and casual lounges.
So register today and book your room before the cutoff of Dec. 12.
We hope to see everyone here in January!
