In order to better address this development, we need a well-trained and motivated urological medical community. Not only is continued education in urology an integral part of this, but it must also be embedded into future-oriented, flexible work-hour models, taking into account the German Work Time Act. Thus, in order to obtain a better assessment of the current situation of urological physicians undergoing specialist training, work -hour models currently used in urological clinics must be evaluated. This should allow conclusions to be drawn to find future-oriented solutions in order to do justice to the Future Offensive—Urology in 2025. Transparency, openness, and cooperation should be top priority between the DGU (German Association for Urology) working groups active in this field and the working groups of the BvDU (German Professional Association for Urologists).
