Established in 1900, we are one of the oldest Urology departments in the country. Our residency program began in 1945, and we continue to work to train the complete urologist.
Our patient-centric, highly agile program encourages residents to apply key basic science discoveries to real-life problems and to work to improve our overall understanding of the conditions we treat.
We offer a personalized, integrated and flexible curriculum with a diverse case mix, balance between inpatient and outpatient care and subspecialty experience. Urology training begins in year one; in 2016-17, each PGY1 resident logged an average of 544 urologic surgery cases.
Our urology residency includes a dedicated, fully-funded and mentored research year. The program includes six months of resident-driven elective rotations, including international options.
