    Demand is rising for physicians who have the expertise to evaluate female pelvic floor disorders. Our faculty of nationally renowned gynecologists, urogynecologists, and urologists will help prepare you for this wider role.

    The Female Pelvic Medicine and Reconstructive Surgery Board Certification exam takes place in 2014. Are you prepared? FUUS will provide key insights so you approach the exam with confidence.

    The economics of health care are more important than ever before. Marketing, coding, and reimbursement—all are critical. FUUS will help you prepare your practice for the new health care environment.

Dear Colleague,

On behalf of the entire faculty, we invite your participation at the 13th Annual Female Urology and Urogynecology Symposium (FUUS) at the ARIA in Las Vegas.

The purpose of this unique meeting is to improve outcomes for patients with lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and pelvic floor disorders through the sharing of perspectives and best practices among gynecologists, urologists, and urogynecologists.

New this year, FUUS also improves your performance on the Female Pelvic Medicine & Reconstructive Surgery (FPMRS) Board Certification Examination. Significantly increase your chance of passing the FPMRS certification exam by taking advantage of the discounted online board review and attending FUUS for your final review before the exam on June 27.

The conference also seeks to help you navigate the increasingly complex world of practice management with reimbursement, coding, marketing, and practice-building advice.

We hope you can join us for this informative meeting.
