On May 18, 2022, the Х Congress of Siberian Urologists with international participation took place in Omsk State Medical University. It was organized by OSMU, Ministry of Public Health of the Omsk Region, Omsk branch of the Russian Society of Urology, and Uroweb.ru - strategic media partner.
Congress of Siberian Urologists is a scheduled event highly valued by urologists from Russia and CIS.

Previously, this event took place in Omsk in 2009 and 2015.
The main goals of the Siberian Conferences and Congresses were to attract young urologists to specialty and science, and to give both recognized leaders in urology and young practicing doctors to present their reports.
