Dear Members and Sponsors,

It is with great pleasure that I invite the BC Urological Society membership to attend the BCUS AGM 2013 in Vancouver on October 25 and 26, 2013.

This year the planning committee has been working hard to bring you a great technical, scientific, business, and social meeting. Please go to the new BCUS website at www.bcus.ca to register for the meeting and to review the agenda. We are working toward making the professional development and scientific components of this meeting eligible for Section 1 MOC credits through the RCPSC.

Professional Development Component:

The agenda includes a professional development module on Friday October 25, 2013 (12:00 – 4:00 PM) presented in the Pearl Room at the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in Vancouver.  This module will feature presentations on the following: 

1)  MainPort MOC – RCPSC – Dr. Rod McFadyen
2)  BC MSP Billling Integrity Program – Drs. Vern Davis and Peter Pommerville
3)  BC College of Physicians and Surgeons – Dr. Galt Wilson
2)  Retirement Planning – David Sung, President of Nicola Wealth Management


This is the 1st professional development module for the BCUS AGM – please show your support for this session. There will be the opportunity to interact with the speakers and there is sure to be lively discussion. Please take time out of clinical work to attend this professional development session.

Scientific Session:

The scientific session will take place on Saturday October 26, 2013 (8:00 AM – 12:05 PM) at the Emerald Ballroom in the Fairmont Pacific Rim Hotel in downtown Vancouver. We are pleased to welcome several distinguished speakers: 

1) Dr. Chasta Bacsu – Female Urology (DUS UBC – Victoria)

4) Dr. Elspeth McDougall – Dietary Management of Renal Stone Disease (DUS UBC – Vancouver)


Residents and Fellows:

PGY 1-5 residents and fellows are welcome to attend all functions. This should prove to be a great opportunity to meet urologists who work in academe and community.


In summary, I welcome you and your family to our annual general meeting. Please remember to register ASAP at www.bcus.ca. I look forward to seeing you all.
