The David M Davis Visiting Professorship is a year-end program that invites a distinguished Urologist to provide a series of lectures on their topic of expertise. There is also an interactive case presentation activity between the residents and the Visiting Professor which reinforces the topics discussed in the lecture components. This program is targeted at the faculty, resident, advanced practice provider staff and students in the Department of Urology.

This year Dr. Gopal Badlani, Professor and Vice-Chair of the Wake Forest Department of Urology in South Carolina will be highlighting the event. He is a world expert in urinary incontinence and female pelvic reconstructive medicine and surgery.  He will focus his lectures on the work-up of patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (with a focus on urinary incontinence), the most common reason patients present for evaluation at a urologist.

The diagnosis and management of these symptoms are complex, and urologists need to be well versed in the appropriate work-up and treatment approaches. These are important to improve patient outcomes, satisfaction and quality of life while providing health care which also reduces costs.

To successfully complete this activity, the required evaluation must be completed no later than Monday, August 1, 2022. Thereafter, the evaluation will no longer be available and credits will not be issued. No refunds will be offered for failure to complete the required evaluation by the stated deadline.
