The group will attend the Victorian Urology State Meeting to discuss the latest in the assessment and treatment of urological conditions including prostate and bladder cancer and urinary stone disease.
The conference begins on Friday with an educational course in treatment for early prostate cancer.
The trainees will hear from Bendigo urologist Stephen Lindsay and radiotherapist Andrew See with a series of lectures and a hands-on skills workshop in brachytherapy seed implantation.
The main scientific program runs over the weekend.
The event’s international guest is Elspeth McDougall of Los Angeles.
Dr McDougall is chair of the Office of Education of the American Urological Association and director of the Minimally Invasive Surgery Education Center at the University of California’s Irvine Medical Center.
She will be speaking on surgical education, minimally invasive surgery and urinary stone disease.
“We have been fortunate in attracting more than 50 abstract submissions, and there will be more than 30 surgeons and trainees presenting papers at the conference,” conference convenor Mr Lindsay said.
The group will attend a dinner at the Town Hall on Saturday night, as well as visit the city’s tourist attractions, including The Zone where they will play paintball.
