Continuing Medical Education in Urology

Educational conferences through the Division of Urology at the University of Colorado School of Medicine (UCSOM)  are accredited through the UCSOM Office of Continuing Medical Education.  The UCSOM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education for physicians.  The University of Colorado Denver School of Medicine designates Urology Conferences as certified for AMA PRA Category 1 Credit(s)TM.  (Physicians should only claim credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.)

Urology Grand Rounds are held on Monday mornings.  Beginning at 7:00 we join the Department of Surgery for Grand Rounds in the AIP2 Conference Center Auditorium.  At 8:00 a.m. we break out into Urology Specific Grand Rounds.  The Urology Specific Grand Rounds will usually be held in Room A of the AIP2 Conference Center. Occasionally, however, the conference will be held in a different location. Please check the conference schedule below for specific information.   Click for a map of the campus and parking areas.

Vitaly Margulis, MD believes in working smarter, not harder, and he applies that philosophy to cancer care.  "I know my patients want to get on with their lives, so I strive for maximum results with minimal treatment," he says. "I'm always looking for ways to make surgery smarter or achieve the same results with, for examples, four cycles of chemotherapy rather than ten."

Dr. Margulis is an Associate Professor of Urology at UT Southwestern Medical Center wherfe he uses robotics, laparoscopy, focal therapy, and open surgical techniques to treat soft-tissue tumors and kidney, prostate, bladder, testicular, penile and adrenal cancers. His primary interest, however, is kidney cancer and he is studying the genetic changes of the disease, what causes it to spread, and how to stop it.
