Most female urology residents do not know that they are already members of SWIU. Due to a generous grant by Boston Scientific Corporation/Microvasive, all women in residency training in the United States are automatically members of SWIU. That means the Newsletters, the website, the sectional and annual meeting breakfasts, mentoring sessions and the power of over three hundred other women in urology come to you without dues.
Most of us are self-motivated and we are self-selected as a minority within a surgical subspecialty. But along the way, many of us have ignored or never learned the power of community. More things get done because you know us, because we know you. Senior members of SWIU are here to help you climb into academic careers or successful practices and into relatively happy, balanced lives.
