The Division of Urology Residency Training Program aims to provide residents with a wide breadth of experience managing medical and surgical disease of the genitourinary tract as well as an in-depth understanding of basic and clinical research in all domains of urology.
We are a high volume, tertiary care center that specializing in minimally-invasive, laparoscopic and robotic cases as well as complex oncologic and reconstructive surgery. We perform a high volume of radical cystectomies both robotic and open, robotic radical prostatectomies, retroperitoneal lymph node dissections, and percutaneous nephrolithotomies. We also perform a high volume of partial and radical nephrectomies in a variety of surgical approaches including robotic, laparoscopic, or open. We provide a graded increase in patient care responsibility and operative autonomy. By providing two years of chief resident level training (PGY-4 and PGY-5), our residents graduate with excellent experience, confidence and exceptional clinical and operative acumen.
We accept two residents per year into a five-year program. Our main goal is to provide a nurturing environment in which residents can acquire the surgical, medical, research, and decision making skills to become outstanding urologists.
By the chief year residents have mastered the ACGME competencies (patient care, medical knowledge, practice-based learning and improvement, interpersonal and communication skills, professionalism, and systems-based practice) and have acquired the surgical and mental skills necessary for pursuit of either an academic or private career in urology.
