The birth of Association of Southern Urologists took place in Chennai in 1988 during one of the CUE programs organised by the senior faculty of the southern states. During the banquet at Adayar Park Hotel, it was decided by the senior statesman that a new professional body should be formed for the betterment of the Urologists practising in South India. Thus came into existence The Association of Southern Urologists. The rest is history. With the blessings of the senior Urologists and enthusiasm of the juniors of southern states, the ASU has grown steadily in strength as well as in academic activities.
