Save the Date: Interactive Discussion and Book Signing Event with Dr. Ralph V. Clayman

October 6th



The preparation of the scientific program is in full swing, and next week we will begin to disclose the details of the program that awaits you at the Videourology Congress in Moscow.


Today we want to talk about Dr. Ralph V. Clayman. Many know him as the legendary endourologist and virtuoso surgeon, who pioneered the world's first laparoscopic nephrectomy. However, there is more to this pioneer than many know. In 2009, he attained the crowning achievement in academic medicine accepting the position as dean of UCI School of Medicine. During his 5-year term as Dean, the UCI School of Medicine obtained many achievements: full accreditation from the LCME, a positive financial balance, opened new facilities, and experienced significant growth in its academic profile. Even though all of this was accomplished, very early into his term, he realized there was a lack of preparedness for a position so demanding and set out to write an academic guide on leadership.


In January 2017, it rose to become the #1 book under Higher Education Administration and today continues to be ranked on Amazon’s Best Sellers list under Higher Education Administration since publication. The Compleat Dean was recently featured in the Spring 2017 issue of The Independent, The Council of Independent Colleges’ quarterly newsletter and has been positively reviewed by the Royal College of Surgeons and The Academic Psychiatry journal, and highly recommended by the Association of American Medical Colleges.


We invite you to join us on October 6th at 2:45 pm for a special and unique opportunity to obtain a copy of this best seller and receive an autograph from the outstanding author.
