A one-day course comprised of didactic lectures and two 2-hour hands-on fresh-cadaver lab sessions covering masculinizing genital-reconstructive and gender affirming surgeries (GAS). Designed for both the reconstructive urologist interested in masculinizing genital surgery and for the general urologist interested in better understanding the anatomy and surgical approaches such patients undergo. Taught by leading clinical Urology, Plastic Surgery, and Gross Anatomy faculty from the U.S. and international gender surgery centers, this course offers substantial learning opportunities for the experienced reconstructive surgeon seeking to learn alternative approaches to common challenges in genital gender-affirming surgery.

*A box-lunch will be provided to attendees.
