Mission Statement

The SIU Innovators' mission is to engage early career urologists from around the globe in the workings of the Society in order to harness their energy and innovation to promote the growth and development of the Society. At the same time, the SIU Innovators offers members opportunities for career advancement within the Society.

The main goals of the SIU Innovators are:

  2. to provide an avenue for early career urologists to become involved in the Society's activities;
  3. to provide a forum for networking and establishing professional collaborations with international colleagues;
  4. to create opportunities for career growth for early career urologists that will make them the international leaders of the future.

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, SIU Academy, and for peer review of articles in our journal, the World Journal of Urology. 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
