WELCOME to 'CLUES'
Welcome message from Chairman
Dear Colleagues and Partners
# Introduction of CLUES and ETS
It is our pleasure to introduce you to the ’Collaboration for the Leap of Uro-Endoluminal Surgeries, CLUES’ which aims to achieve the most optimized medical treatment based on the advanced technologies in the therapeutic area.
CLUES will provide excellent debate & discussion opportunities, where leading experts will gather to brainstorm, share experience, and speak on the latest medical/ technological developments pertaining to the discipline.
CLUES’ one of the established seminars, ‘Endoluminal and Technology Symposium, ETS’ is organized and managed by highly respected members of the medical profession in the region and representatives from the various industry partners.
# A new educational platform
ETS fundamentally focuses on Endoluminal Urology and related Technologies and aims to provide up-to-date trends, techniques, challenges, and advancements in focused areas. Unlike the other traditional conferences which are limited in how many presenters/sessions it can serve, ETS runs based on the participants' input and feedback.
ETS incorporates Massive Online Open Courses (MOOCs) platform which allows all the participants to have their fair opportunities to contribute and enhance the quality of the topic, contents, and discussions because we believe that "There are no such things as silly or stupid questions". Due to its open and multi-directional communication platform, participants are encouraged to raise their points or arguments freely while sharing a wider range of knowledge and experience. Most ETS topics and contents were developed through online discussions and collaborations among participants and this unique culture settled in nicely through the past 3 years of practices.
# ETS runs many programs for the first time in Korea
ETS organized specialized sessions about endoluminal endourology for the first time in Korea in 2018. We clearly defined the roles of moderator, facilitator, and speakers. Regional debates and meetings in other provinces were arranged in advance. Almost all lectures were based on video clips and we focused on various surgical tips and tricks with live or semi-live surgery on main days.
ETS ran the 'Meet the Experts' program for the first time in Korea in 2019 and allocated the 'Moderators' comment time in each session. Technology sessions were expanded.
After two successful offline meetings in 2018 and 2019, we faced the era of covid 19; Therefore, we planned a unique program of 5 monthly installments with active, young, and starry urologists in Korea, Japan, Thailand, Taiwan, Viet Nam, and Indonesia.
Through the past years, ETS gained a solid reputation as an innovative platform for the exchange and dissemination of the latest knowledge and technology from Asia and the rest of the world. As a valuable source of accessing knowledge in the Endoluminal field, ETS will continue to innovate various contents and a platform to provide flexible and easily accessible learning opportunities to urologists at all stages.
# The future of CLUES and ETS
The theme for CLUES is: “Continuous research in ever-developing medical technologies and provide most optimized treatment ” – especially relevant in today’s world, where achievements in the field of urology have been at the forefront of advances in technology.
CLUES will create various opportunities to investigate innovative medical technologies and help peer urologists to keep up with the relevant skills and procedures to meet the complex challenges in today’s fast-moving world. Please join us!!
