Rotations, generally of three months duration, are arranged to ultimately provide each resident with a total of twelve months of adult urology chief residency and three months of pediatric urology chief residency.
To satisfy the requirements of the American Board of Urology, one of a variety of configurations of post-graduate training must be completed prior to the clinical urology residency. Our configuration for the 5 year program is as follows:.

The VISION of the Division of Urology is to be continuously recognized as an entity which maintains the highest standards of patient care, education and research and to be recognized as the highest example for others to emulate in these areas.
