This year, UCSF will sponsor the 41st Annual Northern California UrologicalGolden Gate Bridge Resident Seminar to be held at the Hilton Garden Inn in Emeryville on Saturday, April 11, 2015. The event encourages urology residents from UCSF, Stanford and UC Davis to meet, compete and share a wealth the information garnered year-to-year from the most prestigious campuses in the region.

Peter R. Carroll, MD, MPH, Professor and Chair, Department of Urology, UCSF, calls the event, “An excellent way to receive recognition and accolades from outside the resident’s own departments.” 

Residents submit abstracts covering both the basic sciences and clinical research. Each author must have performed the research personally or in conjunction with other member(s) of the institution. Judges pick a first, second and third place award in each category. The papers are short—250 words—and the presentations are concise—12 minutes, followed by 5-minute questions and answers. Optionally, 12-minute power point decks can be utilized for presentation format.

Judges, one from each university, select winners using the following criteria:

  • Presentation quality
  • Questions and answers
  • Content significance

UCSF has typically done quite well.  Last year’s UCSF winners were:

Basic Science
First Place:  Thomas Sanford

Clinical Science:
Second Place: Lindsay Hampson

Honorable Mention:  Anobel Odisho

Given UCSF’s winning history, are there high expectations for top honors this year?  “Most assuredly,” says Dr. Carroll.
