Welcome to the Young Pediatric Urologists Committee!
The ESPU YPUC is a group of pediatric urologists mainly comprised of fellows, who are in training in one of the JCPU programs, as well as past fellows and other members who can contribute importantly. It is a relatively small working group elected among the members of the larger young pediatric urologists club to improve effectiveness.
The YPUC members share a passion for academic pediatric urology and further improving the European curriculum of the pediatric urologic fellowship by active contribution and collaboration.
We are committed to uphold and entertain a large network of “young” people interested in pediatric urology in order to further promote our great subspecialty.
