Program Goals

The Urology Residency Program's main objective is to educate each trainee to be a complete urologist. The goal is to make any career choice possible to the trainee, whether it be in private practice, clinical academic practice, or urologic research. The finishing Chief Resident should be able to perform the great majority of urologic procedures independently and safely.

Further, trainees will have an appreciation of the changing nature of the specialty and be able to adapt throughout their career. Besides the simple technical accomplishments, we strive to train urologists with high ethical standards. We expect our trainees to always put the patient's best interests first and to be perfectly honest. As the residency progresses, there is graded patient care and operative responsibility for residents.
