Urogynecologist during Surgery

IUGA offers educational Observership grants that are meant to offset costs of visiting an approved host site which has proven expertise for a specific specialty (selected by applicant). Recipients will spend 2 to 4 weeks at a host site, with the agreement that a formal report of the observer's experience will be submitted to the IUGA office at the completion of the observership grant. The reports are published in the IUGA newsletter and posted on the IUGA website.

Please note the 2015 grant cycle is currently suspended.

Grant Application


The purpose of the IUGA-sponsored observership grants is to allow for increased dissemination of urogynecological knowledge by offering a stipend to an IUGA member to visit a renowned urogynecology center in a specific area of interest related to urogynecology.
