Program Overview

The Residency in Urology at the University of Pennsylvania consists of a five year program with rotations at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania (HUP) and the following affiliated hospitals: Pennsylvania Hospital (PAH), the Philadelphia Veterans Affairs Medical Center (PVAMC), the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP), and Penn Presbyterian Medical Center (PPMC). Our residents compliment is four per year.
