Our residency produces outstanding urologists, who have maintained a 100% American Board of Urology pass rate for more than 20 years and regularly finish well above the 50% of index procedures required for certification. We offer unique learning opportunities for residents, from collaboration with fellowship-trained faculty on research to international mission trips in more than five countries.
Handle cases that match your experience and enjoy the flexibility to focus on your interests as you train for a career in urology in a variety of community hospitals and outpatient practices.
Our trainees become experts in specialized surgical procedures through our fellowships in:
Our fellows care for patients, train residents, perform operations and collaborate on research with fellowship-trained attending physicians in our advanced training programs.
We offer a fourth-year clerkship as an elective for medical students interested in pursuing urology.
We host weekly grand rounds with faculty and trainees to discuss complex diseases, diagnoses and challenges in treating patients. Our guest lectures, journal clubs, continuing medical education seminars and multidisciplinary tumor boards provide many options for residents, students, faculty and community physicians to further their knowledge in urology.
Our researchers, residents and fellows publish and present regularly, and our research is making important advances possible in Urology. Proteomics researchers with the Leroy T. Canoles Jr. Cancer Research Center have collaborated with our urologists to identify a liquid-biopsy biomarker for aggressive prostate cancer, which will help with cancer treatment.
Our investigators partner with departments across EVMS including Microbiology and Molecular Cell Biology, as well as with regional cancer research groups, foundations and companies, to conduct clinical trials and advance the field of urological medicine.
