Welcome to the Canadian Undergraduate Urology Curriculum (CanUUC)!
The last 40 years has seen a significant decline in formal undergraduate urologic education throughout Canada. Given the large burden of urologic disease in general medical practice we felt it was imperative that core aspects of urology are preserved as part of undergraduate medical education. With this in mind the Canadian undergraduate urology curriculum (CanUUC) initiative was born. CanUUC was formed in June 2011 with urologic representation from most of the medical schools throughout Canada. This committee has worked toward creating and revised a uniquely Canadian undergraduate urology curriculum focused on forming a “urologically well-informed” medical school graduate.
Our goal is to have a multi-faceted online curriculum that can be easily applied to any situation or site throughout Canada for teaching on the ward, clinic, operating room or at home. Our committee has developed ten PowerPoint seminars covering 10 core aspects of urology including Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia, Prostate Cancer, Urinary Tract Infection, Hematuria, Incontinence, Pediatric Urology, Uro-trauma, Stone Disease, Erectile Dysfunction and Scrotal Conditions. We have also created a series of enhanced podcasts to further compliment these topics and added videos on how to insert a urethral catheter and how to perform a genitourinary examination.
