Who is an SIU Innovator?

The idea behind the Innovators is to engage and promote early career members of the SIU community. Engaging means drawing young members into the organization in order to take an active role in SIU Congresses, committees, and SIU Academy. Promoting means providing young members with opportunities for academic growth, including the opportunity to present original work or deliver state-of-the-art presentations. At the same time, the Innovators are invited to help shape the SIU of the future, to ensure it remains a dynamic organization that is attractive to young urologists
