MUF was set up in the 1990s to champion various activities in Urology like creating awareness on urological diseases, continuous education for our trainees and producing quality research through special interests groups. These objectives will be made feasible with donations and through fund raising events.

a. Support research conducted by our members via the individual research consortiums for each subspecialty in Urology. We will encourage application for funds for research activities by our members especially our trainees to ensure excellent output.
b. Apply for various grants to support this research activities.
c. Collaborative research through multi-centered research work.

b. Help fund trainees in pursuing their fellowships and attendance at various forums to present their achievement in research etc.
c. Train healthcare providers at secondary level to handle urological problems- “Empowering the GPs”.
a. Aid To aid patients in need. Urologists who feel that they have patients who will benefit from newer or expensive treatment modalities can avail this fund.
