CAU Scholarship in Pediatric Urology – Miami Children’s Hospital
Dr. Miguel Angel García Rodríguez.
Surgeon Urologist. Member of the American Confederation of Urology.
Member of the Mexican Society of Urology.
I benefited from the Academic Scholarship program of the American Confederation of Urology, for training in Pediatric Urology with the team led by Dr. Rafael Gosalbez at Miami Children’s Hospital, United States.
I consider it a privilege to have shared many hours of operating theater and clinic learning from the work of expert surgeons. I had exposure to a great diversity of pathologies and techniques of all levels of complexity. Due to the high surgical volume of this center, the management of complex reconstructive procedures, hypospadias, the whole range of continence procedures, reconstruction in bladder exstrophy, the various modalities of vesico-ureteral reflux treatment are part of the routine. Likewise, the use of laparoscopy, robotic surgery, endourology and urodynamics was part of the daily activity. I was always able to receive specific comments that helped me achieve my academic goals.
During my five-month stay; They showed great willingness to teach me and concretize an experience that undoubtedly has strengthened my interest in Pediatric Urology and has given me new knowledge, which I hope to transmit and develop.
Undoubtedly the American Confederation of Urology, meet its purpose of dissemination and academy providing the opportunity to bring, especially young urologists, experts of such high level. Thank you again for having benefited from this opportunity.
