What is UrPedia?

We are an interactive educational website on a mission to make information about paediatric urology easily accessible to anyone, anywhere. Whether you're a doctor looking for a diagnosis, a medical student studying for an exam, or a caregiver searching for answers, our courses, chatbot, newsletter, and glossary have all you need to stay up-to-date on the world of paediatric urology.


Who are we?

UrPedia is supported by an educational grant from Ferring and created by the hard work and dedication of our network - four expert societies in their fields of medicine.


The European Society for Paediatric Urology is a non-profit society whose main purpose is to promote paediatric urology, appropriate practice, education as well as exchanges between practitioners involved in the treatment of genito-urinary disorders in children.

The European Society for Paediatric Nephrology, ESPN, is the professional association for those researching or delivering care for children with kidney disease within Europe. The aim of the Society is to promote research and knowledge of paediatric nephrology through teaching, scientific meetings, and other methods, for the benefit of children with renal disease.

The fundamental goal of the International Children’s Continence Society, ICCS, is to improve the quality of life and life expectancy of children and young people with bladder dysfunction. They aim to achieve this by disseminating and promoting information, research, and best practice to the multiple health care disciplines and specialties across the globe who care for these children, as well as the families and children themselves.
