ASM 2018

The next BSUR ASM is to be held in Sheffield on the 18th and 19th April 2018, organised by Dr Steve Kennish and his team.

Sheffield sits on the eastern foothills of the Peak District and is home of the steel city derby!

The event will be held at the excellent Mercure Hotel and Spa, 2-minute walk from Crucible Theatre, home of the World Snooker Championship (qualifying takes place at Sheffield's English Institute of sport during the week), and a 4-minute walk from Sheffield City Hall. 

As in previous years, the ASM will be preceded by the advanced prostate MRI course run by Drs Alex Kirkham and Clare Allen, held onsite on the 17th April 2018.  This course is now fully booked.

The ASM is designed to promote delegate interaction with real-time feedback and small group "meet the expert" sessions, so that you may get the most out of your conference experience. Ask the questions YOU have always wanted answered, and generate discussion and debate in a friendly environment.

A wide range of urological and gynaecological imaging and interventional themes are covered by the diverse programme. 

Network with friends, old and new, at the conference dinner, where a relaxed mood will be set by the resident Jazz band.

Submit your work for the oral scientific or poster presentation for a chance to win the coveted John Spencer Prize for 2018 (see details below).
