Top apps for urologists
The AUA has several apps for urologists:
AUAGuidelines: "This app contains a concise synopsis of each clinical guideline supported by the AUA for quick reference. It is frequently updated, and I enjoy referring to it both in the clinic setting when counseling patients and in preparation for teaching conferences and examinations. It also contains links to guideline videos; AUA white papers; policy, positions, and consensus statements; surgical risk calculator; Choosing Wisely, and PQRS."
AUAUniversity: I primarily use this app for referencing the Core Curriculum, which is contained in its entirety in the app. The app facilitates both studying and quick referencing. It is also frequently updated. There are also links to AUA abstracts, webcasts, courses, and CME transcripts.
American Urological Association Journals (and other journal-specific apps): "The AUA Journals app specifically provides access to the Journal of Urology and Urology Practice. It provides for a quick means by which to skim over articles in the latest and archived editions. Similar apps exist for other journals in our field, and they are helpful to have."
Uro Challenge: "In preparation for both examinations and the Resident Quiz Bowl of the AUA, this app provides a multiple-choice question format for reviewing material, with real-time scoring."
AUA annual meeting app: This app is "helpful s a roadmap to navigate the national meeting."
