" AURC has become a thread that connects the pearls of budding urologists across Asia. It created a long-lasting brotherhood in just a few days. As a resident, that knowledge helped me get through my exit exam and FRCS exam smoothly. May this great opportunity benefit the next batch of residents as well. "

" AURC was truly an unforgettable experience - beyond the thrill of being in a foreign country and a well-organised programme with comprehensive lectures from prominent faculty, seeing how practices differ from one country to another really deepened my understanding on the practice of urology. But above all, the most important aspect of the course was the invaluable friendships built with many other urology trainees all over the region. Definitely recommended for all urology trainees! "

AURC is not just another usual educational course, in the short span of three days, I had a wonderful sessions that were led by esteemed international experts that were so engaging and mind-opening. We also had the opportunities to present our own topic and dive into a deep discussion between the experts and nominees. But the most important thing of AURC is about building connection, meeting other residents from all around Asia. All of this interaction turned into a long-life friendship and thus open a new network all around the globe. "

" I participated in the AURC in 2022, and it was a truly remarkable three-day course. The lectures delivered by renowned international experts were invaluable, as they generously shared their own experiences. What set this course apart was its focus on not only exam preparation but also captivating discussions on lesser-known yet significant topics such as penile prosthesis, pelvic organ prolapse, and pediatric urology. The course provided a delightful learning experience and facilitated the formation of meaningful friendships with fellow attendees. "

" I had the opportunity to participate in AURC 2022 in Sydney, and it was an incredibly amazing experience. The three-day course covered topics ranging from common practices to rarely encountered ones, allowing me to compare management differences and technologies from various countries. In this course, topics were not only presented in expert lecture format but also accompanied by discussions, with each participant bringing forth specific topics. In addition to knowledge, cross-country connections also proved to be a valuable advantage gained from this course. "
