Clinical Services and Training Facilities
As part of a large medical center and internationally-renowned university, our program offers a wide variety of academic opportunities for collaboration and research, as well as experience in clinical settings, tertiary settings, and community-based practices. Residents have exposure to multi-disciplinary, sub-specialties in urology while serving a diverse population of patients from both inner-city and suburban locations who present with a variety of urologic diseases and conditions. Residents gain experience in both in-patient and out-patient procedures and care.
Urology residents are responsible for providing on call coverage for the urology service at their assigned hospitals. On call coverage is supported by rotating residents and physician extenders. On average, residents are on call every three to 4 days days with at least one free weekend each month. Each resident has three weeks of vacation annually.
