Apply the highest standards of urological care

What is the SIU?

History

The Société Internationale d’Urologie was founded in Paris, in 1907, by Dr. Jean Casimir Félix-Guyon. In 1999, the SIU established permanent headquarters in Montreal, Canada.

Mission

The Society’s mission is to enable urologists in all nations, through international cooperation in education and research, to apply the highest standards of urological care to their patients. The SIU is a major international platform for sustainable urological education and collaborative philanthropic activities aimed at improving urological care with more than 10,000 members from over 130 countries.

The main goals initially identified by the founders of the SIU are still valid today:

  • to create and maintain the best possible conditions for communicating scientific information;
  • to promote both formal and informal contacts between national urological societies;
  • to foster cooperation between urologists from all parts of the world despite differences in material conditions, professional concerns and political views.
