Welcome to the 3rd Percutaneous and Endoscopic Renal surgery Course (PERC 2023)! This is indeed another great opportunity for us to hold this biennial event of the University of the East Ramon Magsaysay Memorial Medical Center (UERMMMCI) Department of Surgery, Section of Urology as we celebrate our 45th year of our Urology Residency Training Program.
As part of our section’s mission that is to facilitate education of Urologists not only locally but internationally, we are once again holding this postgraduate course with a theme of “Updates on Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy“ on October 14 and 21, 2023 with distinguished and globally-renowned experts in the field of Endourology who will be sharing their expertise and give you updates as to what is new in these interesting topics of Retrograde Intrarenal Surgery (RIRS) and Percutaneous Nephrolithotomy (PCNL). I am sure this will enrich further and update our knowledge in Endourology to eventually provide better care which would benefit our patients.
I am sure you will have a very productive, mind-enriching, and learning-filled postgraduate course as we have prepared a program filled with interesting lecture topics, interactive sessions and video presentations.
As always, I would like to express my gratitude to our esteemed speakers, the organizing committee and our friends from the industry who have accorded their unwavering support to make this PERC 2023 possible.

Chief, Section of Urology
