The Department of Urology has four
- adult service A
- adult service B
- pediatric urology service
Two senior residents and one junior
resident are assigned to each adult service at any given time. Mid-level
residents are assigned to the Pediatric Urology Service and Transplant.
The balance of assignments include clinic electives, travel elective,
research and sub-specialty clinics.
First postgraduate year
The first postgraduate year in surgery is structured to give
residents experience in general surgery with special
emphasis on diagnosis, and pre- and post-operative care of the surgical
patient. Emphasis is placed on developing basic technical
skills through direct operative experience. The call schedule varies
with each rotation but averages every 4th night. During urology
rotations call is taken from home.
International urology rotations enable resident physicians to become
immersed not only in in the
culture and traditions of each respective country as well. Due to the
prevalence of some illnesses in only certain regions of the world,
international electives can expose residents to a greater variety of
pathology and disease.
