Male reproduction as a subspecialty is dwarfed by the specialties of reproductive medicine as a whole as well as the numerous larger subspecialties within urology. This is because the subspecialty has limited exposure during urology residency training and fellowship opportunities are extremely limited. The lack of opportunities for learning have lead to male infertility being one of the smallest subspecialties in all of urology, both by number of practicing physicians focused in the area, as well as through research funding. The latest advancements in the evaluation and treatment of the infertile male require an increased knowledge for general urologists, as well as a deeper dive into the latest science by specialists in the field. Many trainees will attend the SSMR program and receive some of their first exposures to the subspecialty. Among seasoned specialists, the educational program will catapult learning and progress in the field through the stimulation of knowledge sharing.
At the conclusion of the 2023 SSMR at the AUA Annual Meeting, attendees will be able to:
- Recognize the latest advancements in the basic science discoveries in the field of male reproduction.
- Discuss clinical and educational innovations in contemporary male infertility practice.
- Discuss how research advances the field of male reproduction through public policy.
- Utilize new techniques to avoid burnout and advance personal wellness.
