Apply to join The Urology Foundation SEC

Are you passionate about advancing knowledge of urological diseases and their treatments?

Do you have strong views about research and training?

Applications are invited to join THE UROLOGY FOUNDATION Scientific and Education Committee (SEC)

This is an opportunity for you to bring your expertise to join the highly regarded Science and Education Committee of The Urology Foundation.

The Urology Foundation (TUF) was started by urologists to advance understanding and practice for the benefit of urology patients. The Urology Foundation is the only UK charity dedicated to all urology diseases and our goal is to put an end to the suffering and deaths that these diseases cause. TUF is administered by a Board of Trustees which includes urologists and lay people.

The SEC meets twice a year, once in March in London, with a second meeting conducted over the phone approximately 6 months later. Ongoing business is usually conducted by email. SEC members have a chance to help shape TUF’s funding priorities and programmes in coming years.

This is an honorary post but expenses will be reimbursed.

The Committee’s responsibilities are to:

  • Review and assess the annual Research Scholarship applications and decide on grant awards.
  • Assess applications to TUF’s other grant streams and decide on awards.
  • Agree on priorities for funding and, where necessary, make recommendations for and suggest changes to TUF’s awards programmes.
  • Promote TUF’s work and programmes to the wider urological community.

N.B. TUF strives to maintain a wide range of specialisms and geographic spread on the SEC.  Due to our current membership and requirements, we will give priority to candidates based outside of London, Oxford and Cambridge.

Applications should consist of a single sheet of A4 together with a brief CV (max 2pp) and emailed to:
