Join us in Chicago November 10-12, 2022 for the LUGPA 2022 Annual Meeting, Independent Urology Powered by Innovation to learn, exchange ideas and to celebrate the accomplishments of independent practices of urology. This year’s Annual Meeting is LUGPA’s most important event - with three days of education and networking available for our constituents: urologists, advanced practice providers, administrators, managers, and healthcare industry supporters.

This premiere event begins on Thursday, November 10, with a customized full day of programming on practice management and a half-day of continuing medical education on state-of-the-art topics in patient care and latest research in urology. In addition, working groups to discuss important topics will be offered for medical directors, research directors and coordinators, lab managers and directors, and practices that provide radiation and oncology services. The day will conclude with a Networking Reception and later, the LUGPA Forward Windy City After-Hours Reception.

Dr. David Albala will share highlights from the LUGPA Executive Leadership Program. Attendees will gain insights from LUGPA practices on useful comparative productivity and financial and quality metrics in the session LUGPA Practice Benchmarking Update, followed by Josh Linkner who will do a talk, sponsored by Verity Pharmaceuticals, about ways to lead and create innovation into your practice. Our healthcare industry supporters will also be available in the exhibit hall throughout the program to answer questions and to network during the Welcome Reception that will close the day.

The meeting will resume on Saturday morning, November 12 with remarks and recap by Dr. Sellinger, followed by a session from the LUGPA Forward Committee on “The Young Urologist’s Road Map to Success.” After the LUGPA Forward panel, there will be several breakout sessions on important topics such as mergers, acquisitions and private equity, addressing an active shooter incident, creative staffing models, restructuring care delivery and the ever-popular “open-mic” session.  Finally, the Annual Meeting Keynote James Carville will entertain us with his signature energy and humor as the program concludes.
