James Forde, an honours medical graduate of University College Dublin (2005), completed his specialist urological training in Ireland in 2015. In 2010 he was awarded the degree of Doctor in Medicine (M.D) from Trinity College Dublin for his investigation of novel treatments for prostate cancer. He became a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland in Urology in 2014.
More recently, he has completed a Fellowship in Voiding Dysfunction at Weill-Cornell Medical College/New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City. Under the guidance of renowned international experts, the fellowship encompassed female and male voiding dysfunction issues, in particular the surgical management of female incontinence and pelvic organ prolapse repair as well as post prostatectomy incontinence, urethral reconstruction and the management of benign prostatic hyperplasia. He also developed expertise in novel treatments for the management of these conditions using the latest technology available including GreenLight laser vaporization of benign prostatic disease and sacral neuromodulation for overactive bladder.
James has authored over 30 peer reviewed urology publications to date, and has presented his research at national and international meetings. He was a lead investigator in a national study assessing PSA testing throughout Ireland. He has collaborated on the development of Irish national guidelines for the role of active surveillance for low risk prostate cancer. He has an MSc in Medical Informatics from University College Dublin (2010). Other awards and grants include the Irish Society of Urology research medal (2010), the RCSI Ethicon Foundation Grant (2015), and the RCSI-Anthony Walsh/Ipsen Travelling Fellowship in Urology (2015). In 2014 he was invited to the annual meeting of The European Section of Oncological Urology (ESOU), an honour awarded to only 15 trainees internationally annually.
