The UroLift® Center of Excellence (COE) Program is designed to enhance patient outcomes and experience. Urologists included in the UroLift COE Program have demonstrated a commitment to care for men suffering from symptoms associated with Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or an enlarged prostate and achieved a higher level of training with the UroLift System.
Below are the requirements to meet the COE Designation criteria.
Interested physician must complete:
If you currently are a UroLift COE, and are looking to get re-designated prior to the deadline, the requirements are as follows:
* Within 12 months prior to submission for designation
+ Cases cannot include a physician’s initial 15 training cases
If a physician was first designated between June 30th and December 31st, 2020, he/she is required to complete the redesignation requirements for 2022 by December 30th 2021.
If a physician does not retain their designation as a UroLift COE physician, the physician’s COE designation will be removed. The physician will be reviewed to determine whether they still meet the requirements to remain on the Physician Locator. If the physician does not meet the Physician Locator requirements, the physician will also be removed from the Physician Locator entirely.
To submit for COE designation or re-designation, please follow these three steps:
1. Submitting the data is mandatory. If you do not or are unable to submit the data by the specified deadline, your COE status will be suspended until your data has been submitted, reviewed and approved.
Physician education events will be led by the Clinical and Medical Affairs (CMA) division within Teleflex Incorporated. CMA is focused on providing medical education to support the safe and effective use of Teleflex products in patients.
Qualifying Physician Education
UroLift University Modulesx
The beginning of the period for completion of physician education will coincide with the beginning of the period for case completion. Physician education events do not need to be completed during the same months used for case assessment. In other words, if a physician attended an education event in June 2020 but did not select that month as one of the 12 months for case assessment, the education event in June would still qualify.
Approved physician education events (may occur virtually or in-person) and modules (virtually) are subject to change as new information is released.
x Physicians must be logged into their individual UroLift University account for the modules to be counted as complete.
