Application Process

The University of Pennsylvania Urology Residency Program participates in the American Urologic Association (AUA) Match Process. Ordinarily applicants apply in the late summer/early fall of their 4th year of medical school through ERAS. Application deadline is in October. Qualified applicants are invited to come to Philadelphia on one of the two interview dates in the fall. The dates are well publicized. 2020 is obviously an outlier with respect to process.

Penn Urology has two residency tracks. We select three incoming residents for the 5 year urology program and one resident for the 6 year research program.

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 hesitate to contact the department.
