Welcome to the ESU ESTs2 Workshop (Endoscopic stone treatment step 2)

This training curriculum has the goal to provide the clinician with proficiency skills in the treatment of urinary stones with endoscopic techniques. This protocol has been designed following a very strict process, in order to mitigate the risks of complications related to the learning curve process. Moving along the different tasks and training steps, the participant will learn how to use the different instruments and technologies:


  • Hands-on Training
  • The management of equipment
  • The standardized technical approach of a urological procedure.
  • Surgical strategy and benchmarks for certain urological indications.
  • Management of critical details related to a urological procedure.

ESU ESTs2 Workshop is postponed

After close monitoring and evaluation of the COVID-19 situation, we have made the difficult but important decision to postpone the ESU ESTs2 Workshop. The health and well-being of participants, faculty members and organisers are our top priority.

We are currently re-organising and making arrangements to provide participants an optimal workshop experience. Once we finalise preparations, we will post the information here accordingly.

If you have any questions, please send an email to ESU Project Manager, Mrs. Claudia Herrmann, via c.herrmann@congressconsultants.com.

Thank you for your understanding and support.


Dear Colleagues,

I am proud to introduce you to the latest hands-on training workshop by European School of Urology, featuring the novel EST s2 protocol.

After several years of development, we are finally ready to provide you with four brand-new tasks, including ureteral-stone fragmentation, kidney-stone relocation and dusting, until the very final stone-free revision. A fully standardized pathway developed in collaboration with EULIS and ESUT sections, to replicate the most common clinical scenarios. Thanks to the latest 3D printing technologies, our tools have been designed on purpose, in order to be replicable and to allow an objective assessment of your performance.

In order to guarantee the best results, hands-on training will be packed together with keynote lectures, focused on topics that are strictly pertaining the simulation part. It will be a unique opportunity to get in touch with our top ESU hands-on training tutors and to make networking with colleagues from all over Europe.

The best mix of science and fun, because we strongly believe that “learning by doing” is the way to go.

So what are you waiting for? Apply today for the next ESU ESTs2 workshop, to join us for a new, great, ESU educational experience.
