Course Description

Urology is the clinical science of diseases within the genitourinary system of males and females. Anatomically it includes diseases in the upper urinary tract like the kidneys and ureters, the lower urinary tract like the urinary bladder and urethra, and the male inner and outer genitals like the prostate, testicles and the epididymis.
 
Many of the symptoms from these organs belong to the top 100 most common symptoms for which patients seek help. This course will set you on a path to a basic understanding of the most common symptoms from the genitourinary system.

You might think that urology merely is a surgical specialty but that opinion couldn’t be more wrong. Today urology is a speciality including numerous new and common non-surgical and pharmacotherapeutic alternatives. Our goal for participants taking this course is to gain knowledge and instill confidence in basic clinical reasoning within the urological field.

This is an informative and useful course. I have no experience in the field and in matter of a few weeks I acquire basic knowledge about Urology. The case-based exercises are designed not only to review the basic facts but also allow participants to familiarize with differential diagnosis that physicians might have to go through when encountering symptoms and signs. Professors Henningsohn and Koskela brought clarities by distilling the essentials from seemingly complex subjects. I would love to have see more reference materials (journals, papers, techniques) with emphases on the diagnostics and treatment. I would love to see a following up course.

On my opinion,it is a great idea create course like this, about clinical medicine. Many people have a problem with health, and some can understand cose and help yorself.Also will be better give some sertificate for people who finished his course. In some countries, it can show that a man know about Urology.For me, it interesting because I want to know what told to me a doctor.And how hi is competent in own work.
