Why Join SFU?

The Society for Fetal Urology is a non-profit organization whose main purpose is to improve the care of patients with fetal and perinatal genitourinary anomalies by promoting research, education, and appropriate practice as well as exchanges between practitioners involved in the care of these patients and their families.

Annual membership with SFU includes:

  • Excellent scientific programs at our SFU spring and fall meetings held in exciting and fun locations (your input is welcome).
  • Network with Experts. Engage with experts in the fields of Urology, Nephrology, Maternal-Fetal Medicine, and Radiology at our national and international meetings.
  • Present interesting cases in a non-threatening forum at our Fall meeting in association with the Pediatric Urology Fall Congress. This is an ideal platform for first time presenters in the earlier stages of training. All presenters are eligible to earn the Best Case Presentation Award!
  • Discounted rate of only $106 for an annual subscription to the Journal of Pediatric Urology. A savings of $209 off the regular price!
  • The Fall SFU Meeting is free for all Active and Associate Members. (The meeting fee is otherwise generally higher than the cost of membership to the society.)
