Dear Colleagues and Friends,
it’s our great pleasure to welcome you for the 5th edition of Surgery in the 3rd millennium: Future is Female, to be held in Barcelona in May 11th & 12th 2023.
We will do our best to connect, engage and promote a live discussion The comprehensive scientific program will include live laparoscopic, robotic and endourological surgeries performed by prominent urologic surgeons; as well as lectures on different
urological sub-specialties, for your clinical education and learning.
Of all the medical specialties, the number of women in urology is one of the lowest. However now percentage of female students in
medical school around the world is increasing and women constitute a majority in the ranks of younger doctors.
Although there is growing evidence that female urologists are being represented in all the fields of the Urology specialty it is true that frequently they are underrepresented on live-surgery meetings non-focused on female or functional urology. It is crucial that all organizations focused in surgery works to minimize inequality; to facilitate inclusion and diversion and for preserving the future of the specialty by removing barriers. We think that this meeting beside being useful and diverse from the scientific point of view, it could
represent a great motivation for female students, young residents, and urologists who are frequently engaged by role models. Goals like these only could be achieved if ALL of us, as urologists, work together.
We are looking forward welcoming you in Barcelona, in its spring bloom!
Franco and Maria
