This one-year endourology fellowship offers a comprehensive training environment that provides experience with all aspects of endoscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic surgery at Yale New Haven Hospital (YNHH), the 4th largest hospital in the United States.
At YNHH, we perform a large volume of stone disease, oncology, reconstructive, and BPH operations, including HoLEP. There are five clinically-dedicated da Vinci Xi robots and one single port da Vinci system. Our sim lab has a dedicated research and training da Vinci robot and a da Vinci simulator.
Clinical fellows typically perform approximately 250 ureteroscopy, 80-100 percutaneous, 30 ESWL, 40-50 lap/robotic, and 100 HoLEP procedures over the year. Fellows graduate practice-ready to confidently perform challenging endoscopic and minimally invasive procedures.
Our endourology fellows participate in the Yale Multidisciplinary Stone Clinic, working side-by-side with a dedicated urologist, nephrologist, and nutritionist.
We have robust surgical and metabolic datasets maintained by a dedicated post-graduate fellow. Additional resources include experts in outcomes and large dataset research.
In addition to clinical and research responsibilities, the endourology fellow is expected to embrace educational and teaching opportunities within the department such as attending conferences, giving lectures, and mentoring the resident staff.
While the fellow will have attending (operative and admitting) privileges, they will take no more call than any other staff attending urologist.
To apply, please send your CV, personal statement, AUA Endourology match application, and three letters of recommendation to the contacts listed below.
Last day for applications for Program Year 2024-25 will be on Friday, April 28, 2023, at 8 a.m.
