Urology Team
The following conferences are held monthly:
  • Surgical Pathology
  • Journal Club
  • Campbell’s Club

Three formal visiting professorships are held every year to allow staff and residents to dialogue current clinical practices one on one with leaders in the field. A wealth of knowledge and experience is conferred to the residents in three to five additional visiting lectureships and one to three short courses with visiting faculty on commonly encountered topics in urology.

Each resident is also sent at departmental expense to the AUA sponsored Basic Science Conference in Charlottesville, Virginia, in the first clinical year.
