On the 5th and 6th of December we look forward to meeting you all in Careggi University Hospital of Florence for the first Masterclass in Andrology organized by our department.

This event is a milestone for our department and will put our institution in the spotlight of complex uro-andrological surgery for two days. Our aim is to host the most esteemed andrologists in the world and welcome them to our center, where they will perform surgeries on highly complex medial cases. Surgeries will be live streamed and then made available in podcast, so as to allow colleagues from around the globe who will want to tune in for this extraordinary event to participate.

In order to celebrate this achievement, the Scientific Board for Education prepared an articulated program as per our tradition but in a new format, which will surely be of interest to you. In order to encourage interactive participation from delegates, we have limited oral presentations and key topics of major interest selected to be presented by key opinion leaders. This will leave ample time for debate between experts, as well as space for meaningful exchanges with the audience.

We will also conduct productive discussions in the “experts under fire” sessions, where anyone, also from remote stations, will be able to ask questions and receive a full response.

Finally, remember that you will be in Florence! It will be our pleasure to welcome you to our city, to make you experience the stunning beauty and renowned cuisine that Florence has to offer. We hope that this friendly and informal experience for all the senses will encourage participants to consolidate collaborations and joint projects. We hope you will all join us in Florence: you certainly will not regret it
