The Endourological Society is pleased to announce the launch of an updated website,

The new website features a powerful member directory, “MyEndo,” connecting its members from all around the world.  It enables members to create a personal profile showcasing their research, expertise, social profiles, and personal information.


Dear Endourological Society Members,

The WorldEndo Initiative was first put forth by Dr. Ralph Clayman with the spirit of advancing Endourology in the developing world by means of education and providing opportunities that might not always be available for urologists from such countries.

Through your philanthropy and ongoing generous support, our Endourological Society (ES) will continue to grow much to the benefit of urologists world?wide and the people seeking their care. We can never begin to quantitate the amount of pain and suffering on a global level that has been precluded due to the major advances that have come from the labors of the various members of the Endourology Society. To that end, it remains incumbent upon us all not only to “spread the word” but to disseminate the expertise to all hands, near and far.

It has been said that, “In our diversity, lies our strength.”  The strength of the Endourology Society can only be enhanced by making a collective effort to bring leaders to the developing world to teach and to educate.

The ES understands the importance of humanitarian and volunteerism.  The ES Board of Directors has approved the authorization of up to $22,500.00 per year for humanitarian volunteerism purposes to be evaluated on an annual basis.  The ES Executive committee will award 3 applicants per year in the amount of $7500.00 each.



Eligible candidates include all Endourological Society members in good standing.  All applications must be sponsored by an Endourological Society member is good standing.


Applications will be reviewed by the ES Executive Committee and World Endo Committee.  The Society does not guarantee annual funding, and funding is based solely upon the discretion of the Executive Committee.  Grant proposals must include involvement with a ES Member in good stating.

At the completion of the project, awardees must submit a brief report summary for review by ES Executive Committee and for publication in the  ES newsletter.  The summary should include the details regarding the project and how it benefited the community.



Applications will be accepted beginning January 1st, 2018 and should include the following documentation:

    • length of project
