LINTHICUM, MD, November 17, 2017- The American Urological Association (AUA) today announced that Dr. Jason Jameson has been selected as the 2018 Gallagher Health Policy Scholar. This program is designed to train the next generation of urologists for leadership positions in health policy.
Gallagher scholars spend a full year engaged in critical seminars, conferences and meetings at the national level, receive mentoring from AUA physicians in senior roles and participate in a week-long health policy seminar for surgeons sponsored by the American College of Surgeons and held at Brandeis University. Scholars also engage in other educational activities that ensure their immersion in and understanding of health policy issues of importance to urology. The award was created in honor of former AUA Executive Director G. James Gallagher.
“Dr. Jameson is a strong advocate for the specialty of urology at both the state and national levels,” said AUA Public Policy Chair Dr. Chris Gonzalez. “We look forward to watching him grow his skills as part of this public policy program.”

He completed his internship/residency in both general surgery and urology at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
