Application Process

The University of Pennsylvania Urology Residency Program participates in the American Urologic Association (AUA) Match Process. Applicants apply in the late summer/early fall of their 4th year of medical school through ERAS. Application deadline is October 15th. Qualified applicants are invited to come to Philadelphia on one of the two interview dates that take place on a Sunday morning in mid-November and early December.

Our program requires the PGY-1 year to be completed in the General Surgery Department at Penn. The PGY-1 position is secured via a nominal process involving the NRMP match once the applicant has matched with us through the AUA Match. Penn Urology selects four incoming residents each year.

Clinical Rotation at Penn Urology

We welcome and encourage anyone with special interest in the program, and for whom it is feasible, to take a clinical elective of any duration some time in the summer, fall or winter. This will enable you to better evaluate our program and permit a better evaluation of you by our staff. If you are a student, follow this link for application procedures and materials. If you encounter difficulty in arranging a rotation, please do not hesistate to contact the department.
