As a member of the International Urogynecological Association, you will gain access to the latest research, technology and knowledge available in the field of urogynecology. New members are readily welcomed into the IUGA community, and along with the formalization of a central IUGA office, members have seen increased modes of communication through the IUGA website, increased opportunities for global and regional networking through IUGA Meetings and social events, as well as new ways to get involved through Committee work. Every member of IUGA, past, present and future plays a role in IUGA's history. It is our mission to ensure you have the opportunity to contribute your own ideas about new programs and projects for IUGA's continued evolution and progress.
What members are saying about IUGA
I love the people who belong to IUGA… Professor Bob Shull, USA - See more...
I love the people who belong to IUGA as well as the people who manage the organization. There is always a sense of “let’s do the best we can to make the organization and the programs meet the needs of physicians , scientists, therapists, and nurses who are committed to providing the best care to women of all walks of life in all corners of the earth.”
Because IUGA has active members from many countries I have been able to nurture my personal knowledge of the world, not only medically but also socially and culturally. The contributions of smart, talented people who are the essence of IUGA, the IUJ, scientific programs, workshops and the information shared on the web site all have made me a better physician and surgeon than I would otherwise be.
My only regret is that I did not become an active member earlier than I did. You can avoid that regret by joining now. Please come to the AUGS/IUGA Joint Scientific Meeting in Washington, D.C. and find your own place in a wonderfully diverse organization. There is something unique you will add.
