Background

In September 2008 «Continentia» obtained the first ICS accreditation for its Urodynamics course ( renewed in 2015 and 2018). First edition was held in 2008. In 21 previous editions delegates from Spain, Bulgaria, Hungary, Slovenia and Romania have been trained with a well-established methodology. Every new edition is fully booked.

Many of the former courses ́ attendees now run Urodynamic Units and are lead speakers in functional Urology: this is our cover letter.

(*) Delegates need to acknowledge the patients ́ right to refusal of observers in the examination room. However, until now this has rarely occurred.
