Introduction to EMPIRE

Freedom Tower East River

Dear Members of the New York Section and other colleagues,

The Educational Multi-Institutional Program for Instructing REsidents (EMPIRE) urology collaborative was originally launched in the spring of 2020 as a mechanism of sustaining resident educational opportunities during the pandemic. This initiative has since grown into a platform for teaching and mentoring trainees within the Section and beyond.

The mission of EMPIRE is to leverage the collective expertise of our member institutions to encourage academic collaboration and develop durable educational content. The collaborative also seeks to develop community-building and professional networking opportunities for Section members at all stages of their training and careers.

Please follow us on twitter @EmpireUrology and stay tuned on this website for upcoming events and new resources.

Recordings of prior sessions will be available in the “presentation & videos” archive, and are a great resource for In-Service Exam, Board prep, and beyond.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our organizing team.
