GOALS AND INITIATIVES
Since his early years as resident, Dr. Batista devoted much effort in bringing ICS standards and terminology to Spanish urologists. He has been very active in training other urolgists and gynecologists. In 2004 he started a series of training activities that have been going on yearly, attracting multidisciplinary audiences from all over Spain. In 2009, with other collegues, he founded "continentia" association, to promote training, public awareness and research. (www.continentia.org)
