MINNEAPOLIS, Minn., Oct. 30, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - Urologix®,
Inc. (OTCQB:ULGX), the market leader for In-Office BPH Therapy, will sponsor a
residency education program at the upcoming 89th Annual Meeting of the Western
Section of the American Urological Association (AUA). The sectional meeting is
being held at the Portola Hotel in Monterey, California from November 3-7,
2013. The course, "Surviving After Residency – Learning the Business Side of
the Practice", is designed to bridge the gap between urology residents and
successful physician practice management.
This program will focus on helping residents understand how to incorporate
minimally invasive therapies into their practice, debate the current standards
of care in urology, describe the differences in HMO, private practice, and
academic positions, and analyze the current and changing financial and medical
landscapes. The course will include lecture, panel, and discussion groups and
be taught by a panel of experts led by program chairman, Jonathan Perley, MD,
Medical Director at California Urology. The panel will also include Drs.
Eugene Rhee from Kaiser Permanente, David Josephson from Tower Urology, and
Mark Edney from Peninsula Urology Associates. The course will take place on
Sunday, November 3rd from 11:15 AM PT until 1:15 PM PT in the Ironwood Room,
and all residents in attendance at the WSAUA Annual Meeting are invited to
attend at no charge.
"There is a known gap between the excellent clinical education we give our
residents and the skills and knowledge needed to run a professional practice,
and that gap is widening as healthcare economics becomes more and more
complicated." stated Dr. Perley, Program Chairman. "This course is designed to
give residents critical practice management information to narrow that gap and
assist with their transition from residency to private practice."
Urologix will also host an unmoderated poster presentation by Dr. Parminder
Sethi on Sunday, November 3rd. Dr. Sethi is coauthor of the accepted abstract:
"Prostiva® RF Therapy for BPH: A Retrospective Analysis of Single‐Center
Outcomes." and the poster describes his patients' clinical outcomes using
Urologix' Prostiva® RF Therapy.
