Subinternship Program

Subinternships are an opportunity for medical students to acquire clinical experience with a hospital, generally as a precursor to applying for a residency at the same hospital. To be eligible for a subinternship, visiting students must be in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th year of medical school, and have at least six months of prior clinical training.

Through the Yale School of Medicine, Yale Urology offers a four-week urology subinternship which provides an in-depth view of the various sub-specialties within urology including uro-oncology, minimally invasive (laparoscopic) urology, endo-urology, neuro-urology, female urology, and pediatric urology. The sub-intern will be a part of the urologic team and actively participate in the clinic, the OR, and on rounds.

The sub-internship is an opportunity for students to showcase their abilities, and their evaluations will be based on their clinical performance, knowledge, and professionalism. Participation in the sub internship will not guarantee a residency interview but will be considered as part of a holistic evaluation of the complete application.
