Our Vision

The Urology Care Foundation has expanded its vision and mission to better serve the global urology community. We’re proud to have created a multifaceted Humanitarian Program which recognizes humanitarians within urology, supports individuals and projects that provide direct urologic patient care for impoverished individuals and communities in underserved areas, either within or outside the United States, and trains individuals who want to become our future humanitarian leaders.

Humanitarian Recognition Award

The Urology Care Foundation Humanitarian Recognition Award acknowledges an individual for demonstrated commitment to improving access to quality urologic health care in underserved populations. The awardee is someone who exemplifies the spirit of philanthropy as evidenced by prior humanitarian work.

Humanitarian Grant Program

The UCF Humanitarian Grant Program recognizes and supports individuals and organizations who provide direct urologic patient care for underserved populations, either in the United States or internationally.   AUA members who are affiliated with existing humanitarian organizations and projects may apply for grants that support providing direct care, enhancing access to care and through educational efforts.

Health Equity Fellowship

Introduced in 2023, the Health Equity Fellowship is designed to train early career urologists who are passionate about humanitarian work within the U.S. so that they can be effective in engaging with diverse communities, especially those most marginalized. The two-year fellowship consists of one year of didactic education in partnership with the Center for Urban Bioethics at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine at Temple University. At the end of year one, the fellow will submit a capstone project which will be supported in year two by a grant and ongoing mentoring.
