TUF Warrior - Mentor Bios

Training is tough, and having the opportunity to speak about problems or issues, or simply to take advice from someone who is not directly connected to your day to day work, is a really important way to put things into perspective and help your personal and career development.  The TUF Warrior programme includes the opportunity for TUF Warriors to choose a mentor.  The mentors have kindly donated their time to this programme and include both urologists and non-urologists.

Adrian D Joyce

A Trustee of TUF, I have had a very fortunate career entering Urology at a time of major change with the introduction of minimally invasive stone surgery and was the Senior Registrar on the team undertaking the first laparoscopic nephrectomy in the UK. Not surprisingly, this led me to a career in Endourology and Laparoscopy.

My research interests have focused on the management and research of Renal Cell Cancer and Urinary Stone disease but latterly on issues relating to Training and the provision of Urological Services.

Previously Secretary, then President of BAUS from 2010 to 2014. Although active both nationally and internationally in Endourology and Laparoscopy, I have never lost touch with my clinical roots, the importance of teamwork and support in the workplace. Now retired from urological practice I have maintained my commitment to Education and Training. Currently, I am the Director of Education for the Endourological Society (USA) introducing Global Hands on Training courses and recently our webinar programme “Masterclass in Endourology & Robotics.

Skills – This career has given me a very broad base of experience and understanding of issues facing the trainees, I feel I can offer general support together with a constructive contribution in areas related to training and career options.

Interests – After years of commitment, I now relish the option to explore alternative avenues including the freedom of the outdoors be it skiing in the winter or walking in the high hills, together with an amateur interest in pinot noir.
