The International Urology Society has been in existence since 1907 and its mission is to enable urologists in all nations, through international cooperation in education and research, to apply the highest standards of urological care to their patients. The annual SIU Congresses give members and colleagues from all nations a forum in which to meet and discuss professional topics in a spirit of collegiality and common purpose.
In 2013 the congress took place in Vancouver. The meeting hosts were Dr. Ben Chew with Dr. Peter Black from the Urology department at VGH. It was a very successful meeting and we are pleased that another large international meeting will be hosted in Vancouver in 2017, the World Congress of Endourology.
