About the Event
Please join us for the Dell Medical School Quarterly Urology Grand Rounds. This conference series is hosted by the Dell Medical School Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care with the goal of facilitating discussion around interesting or challenging clinical cases and related literature.
This installment features Aaron Laviana, M.D., presenting “Non-Muscle Invasive Bladder Cancer: The Landscape Heading Into 2021.” Laviana is an assistant professor in the Department of Surgery and Perioperative Care.
Email Zachary Jacquez for the Zoom information.
By the end of this event series, the audience participant should be able to:
- Review current treatment recommendations for non–muscle invasive bladder cancer.
- List implications of the bacillus Calmette Guérin (BCG) shortage, and troubleshooting this issue.
- Describe the results of recent clinical trials for non–muscle invasive bladder cancer and their potential impact on treatment.
The audience consists of community urologists and engage them with Dell Medical School Urology. It will foster a greater sense of community between the medical school and practicing urologists in Austin. The major barrier will be attendance as this will require urologists to take one evening off/quarter voluntarily.
