    The European Society for Residents in Urology: What Have We Learnt and Where are We Going?

    BJU International, volume 87, Number 3, February 2001, Pg.. 165-167



    The European Society for residents in Urology [ESRU] was established in 1991, as an independent body representing residents within Europe. Sharing ideas, pooling resources and acting as a combined unit it should be possible to improve the quality of life for Europeans. 



    Objectives and Activities : Of the ESRU –



    1. ESRU aims to promote a good quality of training throughout Europe.

    2. ESRU will serve as a forum for discussion. 

    3. ESRU is involved in supporting trainees who wish to visit European centers for short term clinical visits and research posts. The European Urological Scholarship Programme will encourage residents to spend a period of study in units throughout Europe.



    4. Conferences – Unlike the usual such lectures whose questions are not encouraged, ESRU has been able to generate lively discussion on several issues over the years.



    5. Education – ESRU is involved in the AECU course, which is aimed at participants of the forthcoming FEBU examination.



    6. Social Integration – ESRU is a generous host and annually holds a dinner for residents.



    The ESRU Questionnaire –

    92% of European trainees agreed that the basic guidelines should be implemented. Only 65% felt that the guidelines were in place in their country.



    44% felt that there were too many residents in training.

    76% of trainees would have welcomed a tailored training programme working towards a subspecialist goal but only 25% had one. Only 52% of trainees had a compulsory annual examination and 56% an exit examination.



    76% wished for allocated research time but only 48% said it was available. 



    Only 56% felt that an exchange programme would be possible during their training. Log books of residents revealed a lack of experience with open operative procedures.
