All Urology Professionals Welcome!

Dear Colleagues,
If you missed the excellent 2014 meeting in San Diego, then here is another opportunity - and for those attending again, expect an even better experience. With the help of past-program directors Drs. Sean Stroup and Jamey Sarvis, improvements being made will ensure an enjoyable, meaningful and high quality educational event for all. Make your plans now!
We would like to welcome you to the 62nd Annual Society of Government Service Urologists, James C. Kimbrough Urological Seminar in San Diego. We thank our colleagues at the Naval Medical Center San Diego who assisted us in planning and use of their facility. We look forward to keeping our important traditions alive while maintaining a robust academic program this year.
Please join us at the Welcome Reception on Wednesday to kick off the meeting.  We will have three full meeting days and Sunday is dedicated to the Mock Oral Boards and a Men's Health Resident Forum and Workshop at the NMCSD for a total of 21.25 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™. Friday evening will be a free night to enjoy San Diego scenery and restaurants.
We will begin our meeting with opening remarks by CAPT Jose Acosta, MC, USN and AUA Immediate Past President Dr. Pramod Sogani. Our Scientific Program continues to allow every resident and staff the opportunity to present original research at podium and poster sessions. We are also honored to have a distinguished group of visiting faculty that will focus on state-of-the art discussions and highlight best practices and new research in urology.  Special topic lectures and industry programs will round out our meeting.  As usual, we will include ample time for audience questions and discussions of challenging clinical scenarios.
Finally, please join us on Saturday at 6:30 PM for the Kathy and Preston Littrell Awards Dinner, where keynote speaker and local urology physician, Dr. J. Kellogg (Kelly) Parsons will speak about his experience as an author of a best seller thriller novel. We look forward to renewing old friendships and making new ones.
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.
We hope to see everyone here in January!
